Speaker John Boehner held an extremely short press conference this afternoon informing reporters that the House of Representatives would hold a vote on their “plan B” bill to avoid the fiscal cliff tomorrow.

The bill raises taxes on earners making more than $1 million.

“Obama can either sign Plan B or be responsible for the largest tax increase in history,” Boehner said.

The press conference was only 58 seconds long.

President Obama has signaled that he will veto the proposed legislation.
