Reid: "Fiscal cliff" can be averted with "one vote"

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., blasted the House of Representatives and Speaker John Boehner today, saying the House (which is not in session) "should be here" to continue negotiations on the looming "fiscal cliff," which could be averted with "one vote" extending tax cuts for household income under $250,000. "I can't imagine their consciences," added Reid.
