Echoing her words at a press conference earlier in the day, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called Tuesday afternoon for an up-or-down vote on the "fiscal cliff" deal passed by the Senate. She wrote on Twitter that she was confident the bill would pass the House with a "strong majority" of House Democrats.
Strong majority of House Ds support bipartisan Senate bill that passed 89-8. Confident it will pass if @speakerboehner allows up/down vote.
