We may be into the new year, but we've still got a fiscal cliff vote to deal with.
After the Senate finally voted a full two hours after a midnight deadline on Tuesday, they passed a deal to avert the feared fiscal cliff on an 89-8 vote.

The package passed by the Senate would put off budget cuts for two months and preserve Bush-era income tax cuts for individuals earning less than $400,000 or couples earning less than $450,000.
"Glad it's over," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, after the vote. "We'll see if the Republicans in the House can become functional instead of dysfunctional."
A statement from House leadership made no promises.FULL STORY
