Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has announced that the Senate will adjourn until Monday morning at 11 am, with “fiscal cliff” negotiations continuing through the night.

Either way, action must be taken by midnight Monday to prevent taxes going up on all Americans and to avert automatic spending cuts.
