The Ticket

President Barack Obama is taking a "fiscal cliff" break on Thursday afternoon to visit Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he will meet with wounded veterans and their families, the White House announced midday on Thursday.

The center, located in Bethesda, Md., replaced the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, which was closed in 2011.

Additional details will be available after the 2 p.m. visit.
