  Last minute talks for a deal to avert1 tax hikes for everyone and addressed spending cuts in the New Year. Appeared to have stalled in the Senate. NPR’s David Welna reports that Senate Republican leader is looking to Vice2 President Joe Biden, to try to move things forward.
  That mid-afternoon on the Senate floor, Republican leader Mitch McConnell said he had not received a counter-offer from Democrats3 to the proposal he made last night for averting4 a fiscal5 cliff. McConnell said no signal issues seem to be an impossible sticking point.
  “ The sticking point of there to be a willingness and an interest, or frankly6 the courage to close the deal. I want everyone to know, I am wanna to get this done, but I need a dance partner.”
  Majority leader Harry7 Reid confirmed the Democrats are unable to come up with a counter-offer. He said one thing they won’t do was make any cuts to social security. Possibly a reference to a push by the GOP to include new inflation conclusion. That was dampen the growth and cuts the retirement8 benefits.
