LEESBURG, Va. Feb 7 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama told fellow Democrats from the House of Representatives on Thursday he is willing to agree to a 'big deal' with Congress on spending cuts and tax reforms to end the fiscal uncertainty over the U.S. deficit.
'I am prepared, eager and anxious to do a big deal, a big package, that ends this governance by crisis where every two weeks, or every two months, or every six months, we are threatening this hard-won recovery,' Obama told House Democrats attending a three-day retreat.
