House passes tax deal

I'll link the vote when it becomes available, but in the meantime, here is Speaker-designate John Boehner's statement:

“With nearly one in 10 Americans out of work, acting to ensure no American’s taxes go up on January 1st was critically important.  Failing to stop all the tax hikes would have destroyed more jobs and deepened the uncertainty in our economy.  Stopping all the tax hikes is a good first step in our efforts to reduce the uncertainty family-owned small businesses are facing, but much more needs to be done, including cutting spending, permanently eliminating the threat of job-killing tax hikes, and repealing the job-killing health care law.  These are critical priorities the new majority has pledged to act on in the next Congress, and I hope President Obama will listen to the American people and work with us to stop Washington’s job-killing policies.”
