Fiscal Cliff House Vote Is Final - House Passes Senate Bill


That does it. Final vote in the House is 257-167 with only 85 Republican votes in favor.

Both Speaker John Boehner and Congressman Paul Ryan voted FOR the bill. Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Majority Whip Ryan McCarthy voted against, suggesting a growing rift in the House GOP.

The bill will now go to the President for signature. The fiscal cliff has been avoided (for the next two months). Happy New Year!
