(The Hill) House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called it “critical” to avoid automatic spending cuts and tax-rate increases that could go into effect if Congress does not agree on a deficit-reduction plan.

Boehner’s call during the weekly Republican address came after a week in which Republicans and Democrats moved away from focusing on Tuesday’s presidential election and toward immigration reform and a deal to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff.”

Boehner urged Congress to begin action on job creation and deficit reduction.
