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.

And they are stupid. They all knew this was coming because they made that happen by not doing anything LAST YEAR!
Worse than Keystone Cops!
And, as usual, all the RINO pundits (Kristol, Krauthammer, et al) say “best they can do...better than fiscal cliff...saves majority from raising taxes” blah, blah, blah.
The GOP was played yet again. Time for these fools to go. They are totally useless.
FU CONGRESS! Try a budget morons. Stop pretending every single dime spent by the federal government is nirvana!
SO HOW MANY OF YOU FOLKS ARE GOING TO REMAIN REPUBLICANS?
If Hitler had won the war I’m sure he would have considered Stalingrad a victory along the way.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA (taking breath) HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!
The lower payroll tax was temporary “tax holiday” - it is just going back to normal, sucks but we knew it wouldnt last.
I hate the left. I hate what they stand for. But at least they do stand for something and then fight for it. The Republicans are both stupid and cowards.
some of us already realized that just by looking at his voting record and history. we didn’t buy the establishment kool-aid.
My congresscritter’s website has a promise he (Culberson) will not vote for it so hopefully he didn’t cave. My Senators (Cornyn & KBH), no surprise they voted for it.
What is his rational?!
“I hate the left. I hate what they stand for. But at least they do stand for something and then fight for it. The Republicans are both stupid and cowards.”
They are spineless pu$$ies!
I know....and it is so frustrating. But u have to point that out when speaking of the republicans. This bill stopped my taxes from going up but was just over talking to my neighbors...it will not stop her and her husbands from going up. However they knew when Obama won that that would be the case.
They will pay. They will be known as Benedict Arnolds the rest of their miserable lives. They know they have stolen our money and could have done something; but chose to fill their own pockets. Men and women, no, cowards and traitors, yes.
“The lower payroll tax was temporary tax holiday - it is just going back to normal, sucks but we knew it wouldnt last.”
I still love the irony.
Anything can happen in the Washington Sausage Factory. But I am celebrating the positive news for me in the middle class, for now.
It amazes me that McConnell was able to make middle class tax rates PERMANENT when the republicans could not do it when they held all 3 branches during Bush-43.
To quote a comment at hotair at 11:07 PM:
” The next time the RNC calls, I will tell them to pack sand, and
the next time charity calls, I will tell them to go call Santa Barack. “
I concur, to include all pol solicitations, not just the RNC. Until there is rebellion that is indisputable and clear, and with a rebel giant leading it, I look out for me and mine.
Unlike election night, Bonehead rushed to get on TV to cave.
I doubt we will see Bonehead tonight.
Boner is a coward and never has been a Republican Conservative, he has always been a Republican “get along to go along” kina person.
Sorta like whats his name, Michaels for the days gone past...but hey he does get invited to all the parties.
betcha this is forgotten in 2-4 weeks....
any takers ?
