The House goes on vacation
Posted by Staff
The Washington Times reports:

House Republican leaders announced Thursday night that the House has recessed until after Christmas, just moments after the GOP pulled a vote on a controversial tax plan from Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

"The House has concluded legislative business for the week," Ben Howard, floor assistant for Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said. "Members are advised that the House will return for legislative business after the Christmas holiday when needed."

That announced came just moments after Boehner released a statement saying it's up to President Obama and Senate Democrats to work on legislation to avoid the "fiscal cliff."
