Just after 2 o'clock in the morning yesterday, a bill to address the fiscal cliff crafted by Vice President Biden and Minority Leader McConnell passed overwhelmingly in the Senate by an 89-8 margin.
The GOP-controlled House has agreed to consider the proposal later this morning, although it's unclear how the votes will fall.
Rep. Elijah Cummings is one of the Congressmen who will be addressing the legislation in the House today and he talks to John Berman on Starting Point this morning to explain why he's leaning toward voting for the bill.
"One of the things I've emphasized over and over again is that politics is about the business of compromise" Cummings says. "I don't necessarily like everything in this piece of legislation... but at some point, we've got to take care of people like folks in my district who through this deal will at least be able to get the unemployment benefits, and a number of other things that mean something to middle class families."
