    House gives final passage to fiscal cliff bill

    House gives final passage to fiscal cliff bill

    Associated Press – 4 mins 12 secs ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Legislation to block the "fiscal cliff" is headed to the White House for President Barack Obama's signature. The bill will avoid, for now, the major tax increases and government spending cuts that had been scheduled to take effect with the new year.

    Final approval came in the House on New Year's Night. The vote was 257 to 167.

    The Senate passed the bill less than 24 hours earlier.

    The measure raises tax rates on incomes over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples, a victory for Obama.

    It also extends expiring unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless, prevents a cut in fees for doctors who treat Medicare patients and cancels a $900 pay increase due to lawmakers in March.

    Another provision is designed to prevent a spike in milk prices.
