WASHINGTON D.C. -- President Barack Obama has been getting ideas to avoid the fiscal cliff from the public, businessmen and now governors.

Gov. Scott Walker heads to Washington D.C. Tuesday for a meeting of the minds.

The meeting could make an impact on the fiscal cliff.

The governors are expected to discuss possible solutions and bring up issues that each state faces.

Gov. Walker is one of seven governors headed to Washington because he is a member of the National Governors Association executive committee.

There are a mix of republicans and democrats, which is key as both parties are trying to compromise to avoid the cliff in just four weeks.

If Congress does not act to end major spending reductions by January 1, then about 90% of Americans will pay more in taxes.
