Fiscal Cliff update – Eric Cantor does not support Senate bill

Rep. Eric Cantor – number 2 in the US House – says he does not support the Senate bill passed to avert the “fiscal cliff.”

The Senate passed the measure early Tuesday by a sweeping 89-8 vote.
House passage of the measure would send it to President Barack Obama for
his signature.

The bill would increase taxes on family income exceeding
$450,000 and delay across-the-board spending cuts for two months.
