Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) announced this afternoon on the Senate floor that he and Vice President Joe Biden have reached agreement on all the outstanding tax issues, although they were still negotiating how to modify the $109 billion in automatic spending cuts set to take effect tomorrow.  He urged Congress to immediately clear the tax deal in order to prevent historic tax hikes get to go into effect tomorrow, stating “Let’s pass the tax relief portion now, let’s take what’s been agreed to and get moving.”
