DEAL DONE!!! Obama Fiscal Cliff Victory Speech after Deal Bill APPROVED by House and Senate President Obama, here discussing his hopes for an agreement on the so-called fiscal cliff on Monday, is prepared to quickly sign the stopgap bill on the cliff that was passed Tuesday night. WASHINGTON — In a New Year’s Day of intense legislative drama, the hopelessly divided 112th Congress finally came together to pass a partial fiscal-cliff fix. Late on Tuesday night, after the Senate began 2013 by acting to pave the way for a compromise, the House voted, 257 to 167, to increase tax rates on the wealthy and spare the middle class a significantly harder hit from the Taxman. Passage of the White House-backed bill delayed for two months the beginning of the cliff’s severe program of across-the-board spending cuts, putting lawmakers on a course for another round of brinksmanship in just a few months that will be compounded by a debt ceiling fight. After Congress missed its self-imposed Jan. 1 deadline, had both chambers not come through Tuesday, taxes were mandated to rise for almost all Americans, and the federal government would have had to start implementing some 0 billion in slashed spending on domestic and military programs. J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE/AP Vice President Joe Biden arrives for a closed-door meeting with House Democrats on Capitol Hill Tuesday to discuss the fiscal cliff bill.
