Mr. Roberts Goes to Washington

Comcast Chairman among Business Leaders Who Met with President 12/02/2012 7:00 PM Eastern

Comcast chairman Brian Roberts was one of the business leaders who met with President Obama last week to talk about balancing economic growth and reducing the deficit, both keys to the ongoing fiscal cliff negotiations between Congress and the White House. “We had a constructive meeting,” Roberts told Multichannel News. “ It’s encouraging that the president and congressional leaders are focused on coming to an agreement that, if reached, could unleash a real sense of optimism. The sense of the meeting was if this occurs, the economic growth in the new year may be even greater than many have predicted.”
