Ronald Reagan's former home for sale for $5 million

(CNNMoney) - The Pacific Palisades, Calif., home where Ronald and Nancy Reagan lived just before they moved to the White House is on the market.

In the 1950s Ronald Reagan's best movies were behind him, but he still had enough charm to be asked to host "General Electric Theater," an early television anthology show.

CBO: Fiscal cliff deal adds $4 trillion to deficits

New York (CNNMoney) – The fiscal cliff deal passed by the Senate Tuesday morning would increase deficits over the next decade by close to $4 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

But that's relative to where deficits would otherwise be if Congress were to let all the Bush tax cuts expire and keep much if not all of the other tax hikes and spending cuts under the fiscal cliff in place. Under that scenario, only $2.88 trillion would be added to the debt over the next decade.

Stocks set to fall as fiscal cliff looms

New York (CNNMoney) – It's not the end of the world - literally or for the fiscal cliff talks - but the latest signs of gridlock on Washington have struck fear into investors.

Lawmakers in the House failed to support the so-called "Plan B", a proposal backed by House Speaker John Boehner, late Thursday. The White House had already threatened to veto that plan, saying it would bring only "minimal" changes in projected budget deficits, but its failure underscored the lack of progress on Capitol Hill as the cliff draws nearer.

Washington (CNNMoney) – In his re-election campaign, President Obama says he wants to cut the growth of college tuition in half over the next decade.

Geithner: Republicans have 'no plan' to create jobs

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says Republicans in Congress don't have a plan to create jobs - a statement Republicans in Congress dispute.
"Unless the Republicans are willing to do more things to help the economy right now, then unemployment will stay too high," Geither said in an interview that aired Wednesday with CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin.

The remarks came on the same day House Speaker John Boehner released a list of 132 American economists who he says support his "Plan for America's Job Creators," a collection of 22 bills passed by the Republican-led House but stuck in the Democrat-led Senate.
