On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner failed to gain support from GOP colleagues for his "Plan B" proposal to avert the fiscal cliff, the automatic tax increases and across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect January 1. As of now, Congress has left for the holiday, indicating we are nowhere near a deal.
The House of Representatives has concluded legislative business for the week. The House will return after the Christmas holiday when needed.
