Invertebrate House GOP to Vote on Senate Fiscal Cliff Bill

Straight up-or-down vote with no Amendments to HR-8

fiscal-cliffHouse Republicans have agreed to have an up-or-down vote on the bipartisan Senate deal to avert the “fiscal cliff,” rather than trying to amend the Senate bill with more spending cuts before voting, according to a senior GOP leadership aide.

The vote will likely come tonight despite top House Republicans’ earlier opposition to the deal, which the Senate passed in the wee hours of New Year’s Day, because of concerns about the cost of the deal’s spending provisions.

If House Republicans had tweaked the legislation, there would have been no clear path for its return to the Senate before a new Congress is sworn in Thursday.
