Fiscal Cliff Notes for Dec. 23, 2012
8 days to the fiscal cliff

Two days before Christmas and all quiet on the fiscal cliff front. The Sunday shows will yield enormous speculation about whether there will be a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff by the looming Dec. 31 deadlines. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) for now seems to have big choices to make: will he allow a bill to be called that could be passed--but mainly with Democratic votes? Or does he allow a rump group of Republicans prevent a GOP negotiated package from being passed?
