Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) walks from a meeting with House Republicans about a solution for the "fiscal cliff" on Capitol Hill in Washington January 1, 2013. Washington's last-minute scramble to step back from a recession-inducing "fiscal cliff" shifted to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives on Tuesday after the Senate approved a bipartisan deal to avoid steep tax hikes and spending cuts.
