House GOP: No vote on ‘fiscal cliff’ deal on Monday
The US House will miss the midnight Monday deadline lawmakers set for voting to avoid the “fiscal cliff.”
House Republicans notified lawmakers that the chamber will vote Monday evening on other bills. They say that will be their only votes of the day, the Associated Press and others reported.
It remained unclear whether the Senate would vote Monday.
Congress could pass later legislation retroactively blocking the tax hikes and spending cuts.

As we predicted, the ball already dropped. No need to watch TV tonight. Dick Clark (RIP) won’t be on anyway, sadly. :(
