Correction: This story's original headline implied that Sen. Chambliss plans to raise tax rates. As the senator states in the interview, his plan calls for increasing revenue by reforming the tax code.

Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep talks with Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss about the prospects of negotiating a bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff and whether lawmakers can reach an agreement over how to raise revenue. Chambliss was a member of the Gang of Six, a bipartisan group of senators that has tried in the past to reach a long-term deal to reduce the deficit.
