House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), right, and House Minority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) held a press conference on Friday morning on Capitol Hill, on Dec. 21, 2012, a day after Boehner was forced by his Republican members to abandon legislation that would have raised taxes on incomes over one million dollars (which he called 'Plan B’). He stated that he would continue to work on legislation to avoid a fiscal crisis, but indicated that President Obama and the U.S. Senate must now lead the way. (Photo by Jeff Malet).
