House Vote on 'Cliff' Proposal Unlikely Tonight
This afternoon, many of the House GOP's top members – chairmen, whips, leaders, etc. — gathered in the speaker's office to hear the latest on the fiscal cliff negotiations from the speaker. In summary, they're still waiting for the Senate to act, but even if the Senate votes today to successfully avert the cliff, it does not necessarily mean there will be enough time to get something through the House before midnight tonight.
