Biden briefing House Democrats on fiscal cliff deal

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Vice President Joe Biden heads to Capitol Hill for the second time in less than 24 hours to broker deals for Congress to pass fiscal cliff legislation. Biden, the key White House negotiator with Senate Republicans, briefs House Democrats on the fiscal cliff deal at 12:15 p.m. ET.

House Republican members hold their own huddle at 1 p.m.

Other details on how the House will proceed are developing. There is no guarantee of a vote. The Senate passed their fiscal cliff bill a little after 2 a.m. on Tuesday after a rare New Year's Even session.
