Arshi Siddiqui Quoted by National Journal on the “Fiscal Cliff”

Arshi Siddiqui, Akin Gump policy partner and former senior policy advisor and counsel to former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was quoted by National Journal for the article “Despite Happy Talk, Slow Progress in Fiscal Cliff Talks.”

In discussing the need for patience in the run-up to the January 1 deadline, Siddiqui noted, “I was happy about the rhetoric from the last meeting. Everyone realized that they needed a nice tone, and the markets responded nicely. There will be lots of up and downs before we get to a successful resolution.”
