US House may not vote on fiscal cliff deal before Jan. 1
The US House of Representatives may not vote on any Senate-passed 'fiscal cliff' deal until after Monday's midnight deadline, a Republican leadership aide said. The aide said any negative fallout from delaying a vote until Tuesday, New Year's Day, would be minimal since financial markets would be closed.


The aide noted, "We still don't have a bill from the Senate and we want members to read it before they vote on it." (Reuters)
