Boehner Calls House Back on Sunday Night

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said the House of Representatives will reconvene on Sunday evening, just less than 30 hours before the United States reaches the fiscal cliff, NBC News reports.

Lawmakers were told that the House would come to order at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday in hopes of averting the end-of-year combination of tax hikes and spending cuts that constitute the fiscal cliff.

Said Boehner: "We've done our job, it's up to the Senate to act. We'll see if they do anything."
