Barack-Obama2 400HONOLULU: President Barack Obama may return to Washington from his Hawaiian holiday as early as Wednesday evening to address the unfinished "fiscal cliff" negotiations with Congress, an administration official said on Tuesday.

 

No further details were available about the president's plans when he returns to Washington.

 

The focus on negotiations to avert a sharp rise in taxes and deep spending cuts from Jan. 1 has shifted to the US Senate after the House of Representatives failed to pass its own budget measures last week.

 

Obama and his family arrived in Hawaii early on Saturday.

 

According to aides, the president has devoted his time to rest and recreation, however some of his aides spoke with Senate Democratic staff about fiscal cliff issues on Monday.
