A view of the White House December 31, 2012 in Washington, DC. Lawmakers in Washington continue to work on a last minute compromise to pass legislation to avoid a fiscal cliff of tax hikes and spending cuts in the United State's federal budget. Lawmakers were aiming to bring a bill to the Senate floor that would keep tax breaks on the books for middle-class Americans while letting those for the rich expire.
