According to CNN and a Facebook post Thursday afternoon, by Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), President Obama is expected to send congressional leaders a scaled-back proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff. But Democrats plugged in to the negotiations say that's false.
"While we're expecting Democrats to finally act, I don't have a specific timeframe," a GOP source familiar with the matter told TPM, neither confirming nor denying the reports.
Update: TPM has learned that reports that the White House is about to send an offer to Capitol Hill are not accurate, or at best an exaggerated read-out of GOP discussions with President Obama.
Update II: An aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) also tells TPM the reports are "not true."
