.Fiscal Cliff Deadline Will Be Missed After House Punts On Vote
.WASHINGTON -- The United States government will miss the end-of-the-year deadline to resolve the so-called fiscal cliff, House Republicans conceded Monday afternoon.

The House of Representatives will adjourn Dec. 31 without voting on a bill to delay the impending tax hikes and spending cuts that will begin going into effect tomorrow. Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) sent the following update to party members on Monday afternoon.

Good afternoon. Thanks for your patience. Here's the latest on the Floor schedule:
There will be a Special GOP Conference Meeting at 5:00 p.m. in HC-5. Immediately following Conference tonight, roughly 5:30-6:00 p.m. we will have our first and only vote series of the day on suspensions.

Walk off the Floor: 6:00-6:30 p.m.

The Senate has not yet finalized a deal to resolve these issues, but it is widely expected that it will reach an agreement by the end of Monday. Because of that, the markets may not react too negatively to the House missing the deadline by a few days. It helps that stock exchanges are closed on New Year's Day.

Still, the inability of Congress to resolve this issue on time caps off a session that was historically unproductive. The 113th Congress convenes on Jan. 3.

The 112th Congress : the most "historically unproductive" Congress since 1940...that pretty much sums it up.

As an Independent I shiver at the prospect that this Congress cannot make things go well for everyone in America. The people have spoken. Obama will still be president and McConnell failed in his attempt to make him a one term president. Fact is Obama got a mandate whether the party with the fringe on top believe it or not! We're going over the fiscal cliff and the only way to fix it in future expulsion of TEA-types. Obama has the reins of this wild romp and they have no control. These 51 House TEA party fanatics are in denial and are doing everything they can to make due while they still can. This feeds into the statement money and power in the hands of fewer and fewer people with stricter less compassionate feelings. The few in Washington are controlling the lives of every citizen in the country with their uncompromising positions and issues. If the TEA-Republican's do not get their act together, they will lose severely next cycle. The people are much more sophisticated and informed than ever now with the Internet and social media. And the 2014 Mid-term election is a-coming!

Republicans allowed the biggest tax increase in history today.. What a disgrace to the country. Get off the party politics line and do something good for the folks that elected your sorry asses!

Happy New Year, hope you enjoy not being re-elected.

Here's a little refresher on the non-accomplishment of the lowest rated, least effective 112th Boehner-House congress:
House Bills passed:
46 Bills on Abortion
113 Bills on Religion
73 Bills on Family Relationships
36 Bills on Marriage
72 Bills on Read More... Firearms
604 Bills on Taxation
437 Bills on Govt Investigations
Bills attempted and failed to be passed even by the GOP:
33 attempts to Defund Obamacare.....Failed (Costing taxpayers $50 million bucks)
15 attempts to Cut Funding for Planned Parenthood......Failed
3 Attempts to Cut Funding for VA Hospitals.......Failed.
GOP blocked bills:
Blocked bill to aid Small Business
Blocked Unemployment extension
Blocked Bank Reform Bills
Blocked Campaign Finance Reform and open Contributions Law
Blocked MULTIPLE Jobs Bills
Blocked Infrastructure Bill
Blocked Ending Tax Breaks for companies that Outsource Jobs
Blocked Wall Street Reform
Blocked Energy Legislation
Blocked Mine Safety Bill
Blocked Oil Spill Liability Cap increase
Blocked Bill to lower Oil Company Tax Breaks
Blocked Bill to impose charging American Oil Companies on Oil achieved in the Gulf
Congressional GOPTea numbers are greatly reduced thanks to the shellacking American voters handed them in the 2012 elections. And we're going to do that again in 2014 until everyone in this sorry Party is gone from our Government. We the people demand and deserve a Government of the people, by the people and for the people, which the GOPTea decidedly arenít!

John Boehner and GOP leadership know that anything out of the Senate today would pass... but with a minority of Republican votes and a majority of Democratic votes.

Boehner knows that this would spell the end of his Speakership.

Hence, no vote.

For the Republican party, once again politics trumps policy to the detriment of the nation

No you blind fool, you will never recover after Obama takes away your money with healthcare and when you are ultimately destroyed.

The only reason the "fiscal cliff" even exist is because the House Republicans held the country hostage during the last debt ceiling vote and turned it into a national crisis.

Good riddance to the Red Coats in the 112th Congress - worst House of Reps EVER!

Maybe if you didn't spend all your time legislating womenís privates while chanting Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!, going on one month vacations every two weeks, and passing the same useless resolution over & over & over 33 times or filibustering nearly 400 pieces of legislation - you know, the peopleís work - you might have accomplished something.

Oh yea you did - you made Trumanís Do Nothing Congress look industrious!
