Posted on 01/01/2013 8:07:58 PM PST by SeekAndFind
After a long day of fiscal cliff chaos, the House will finally hold a vote tonight on the fiscal cliff bill passed by the Senate early Tuesday.
The decision to hold an up-down vote virtually guarantees passage of the bill, which would extend the Bush tax hikes for households earning under $450,000. that the bill will pass.
For most of the day, House Republicans have said that they could not support the bill without spending cuts, but by Tuesday night it was clear that GOP leaders could not come up with the votes to pass an amendment to add those cuts.
The House Rules Committee announced that there will be a vote on the unamended Senate bill in the 9 p.m. hour. Check out all of the days developments below.

Ok, and we are surprised why?
Come on really, the GOPe has been greased and violated yet they liked it.
FU John Boner!
This Kabuki dance is FINALLY over?
Long past due.
Take notes. Then primary. Relentlessly.
Until they’re all gone.
Communist Victory File.
Sadly, many Republicans waited until the bill passed before voting No. They need to go too.
I’m sure the stock market will soar tomorrow. This Country is sick.
Where can we find a list of R yes votes?
The whole charade was nothing but bukkake theater.
All the “ayes” are to be PURGED in the primaries!
Ryan voted yes
Actually, I am not only surprised but shocked. Not at the RINO votes, but I am shocked that my Tea Party candidates Senator Ron Johnson and Rep. Paul Ryan voted yea.
I stood in the cold listening to both of these men promising no new taxes and that they would cut spending. I believed them and embarrassed myself in front of and to my liberal friends for doing so.
I will be mailing back my Republican party membership card tomorrow along with my full explanation why.
I hope God has mercy on their souls, because I do not. I will never forgive any of them for ignoring the mandate we gave them when we sent them to represent us.
I’m a bit puzzled. Grover Norquist doesn’t think it’s that awful. http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/Norquist-Biden-McConnell-support/2012/12/31/id/469608?s=al&promo_code=11596-1
I hate these people. Like the French surrendered at Dien Bien Phu before the Vietnam war.
