    FILE - This April 14, 2011 file photo shows Erskine Bowles, right, Alan Simpson, co-chairmen of the president's deficit reduction commission, talking to reporters outside the White House in Washington after their meeting with President Barack Obama. The election may be over, but a new campaign is being waged in the nation’s capital as lobbyists, advocates and trade groups fight to shape the government’s response to the looming fiscal cliff. It’s a twist on the usual lobbying effort: Instead of digging for more tax dollars, they’re trying to protect what they’ve got. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)

    FILE - In this Dec. 20, 2011, file photo President Barack Obama speaks during the news briefing at the White House. Unless Congress acts, the trust funds that support Social Security will run out of money in 2033, according to the trustees who oversee the retirement and disability program. Obama hasn’t laid out a detailed plan for addressing Social Security. He's called for bipartisan talks on strengthening the program but he didn’t embrace the plan produced by a bipartisan deficit reduction panel he created in 2010. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)

Dean Heller, R-Nev., speaks during a news conference, called to demand that the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction open the entirety of its proceedings to the public, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Republicans? clear shot at winning control of the Senate is attracting tens of millions of dollars from GOP-allied outside groups eager to spend on a surer bet than the White House race. Control of the U.S. Senate will hinge on some tight races, including the Nevada race, seen by Democrats as one of their best chances of unseating one of the newest Republican senators, Heller.

    FILE - In this Nov. 1, 2011, file photo Erskine Bowles, co-chair of President Obama's Commission on Fiscal Responsibility, foreground, testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington before the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (Supercommittee). The coming year-end spending on the table after the failure of three high-profile efforts at big deficit deals shows how hard it is to stem the government's flow of red ink. Lawmakers are poised to renew a Social Security tax cut, and to continue unemployment benefits to people out of work for more than half a year. From left are, Bowles, former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson, former White House Budget Director Alice Rivlin, and former Senate Budget Committee Chairman Pete Domenici. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
