Lawmakers Predict Last-Minute Vote.

A House Democrat and a House Republican said Saturday they do not expect a vote until after the weekend on any proposal to avert the looming fiscal crisis.

Reps. Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, and John Yarmuth, D-Ky., both told Fox News they expected the Senate to work on a proposal through Sunday and perhaps into Monday morning before voting, then pass the legislation to the House for a final vote.

“I’m looking for something on Monday,” Yarmuth said. “The Senate is going to have to act first. … They’ll need that time through Sunday and early Monday.”

Let me see, If the Senate plans to write their bill on Saturday and get it passed(??), then send it to the House to get passed after 6pm EST Sunday (??) with changes to be sent back to the Senate. Monday the 31st, will have to be the day it would seem, to be the last session in 2012.

It’s possible that if a deal has been reached that a bill could be passed by the House and approved by the Senate within two or three hours. But I don’t think that’s likely.

Doubt it. Neither side wants to compromise their principles. The Democrats want increased taxes and larger government while the Republicans want smaller government and lower taxes. Compromise will be hard to see happen. Hope so BUT?

Second it….

mvguy   •   Fri Dec 21 2012 at 12:09pm PST

Duh. Fixed.

Just a off the wall question If the House when returning to session at 6:00pm EST day, remains in session util say 00.01am EST Monday 31 December, would the market then close out as 31 December? I doubt that this would be the case, as I belive both the Senate and House will be open for business on the 31st, if nothing more than to save face.

mvguy   •   Thu Dec 27 2012 at 11:27pm PST

Yes, if they’re in session after midnight, that would count as Dec. 31.

Thanks. I thought so but was making sure.
