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.
There is a deal in the works that could stop tax cuts from hitting most Americans, though it has to pass both Houses of Congress in the next day-and-a-half. It's all extremely uncertain, but 9News reporter Gary Nurenberg breaks it down.
People are frustrated with the uncertainty, with congress even with the phrase "fiscal cliff". They're sick of hearing it. But at the same time people are still very confused and concerned about what going over the cliff is going to mean for them.
