Joe Crowley (D-NY) after their caucus meeting in the US Capitol on December 30, 2012 in Washington, DC. Last minute talks stalled Sunday between top US political leaders aimed at averting a fiscal calamity due to hit within hours, as Democrats and Republicans blamed each other for a lack of progress. Top Democrats and Republicans groped for a compromise before a punishing package of government spending cuts and tax hikes come into force on January 1 which could roil global markets and send the US economy back into recession.
