House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says he does not support a Senate deal to avert the fiscal cliff but that House GOP leaders have made no decisions on the bill's fate.

After a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called on Speaker John Boehner to bring the measure to the floor for an up-or-down vote.

Boehner's spokesman said that "the lack of spending cuts in the Senate bill was a universal concern" among GOP House members.

The deal passed the Democratic-controlled Senate with a 89-8 vote in the early hours of Tuesday; it would maintain income tax cuts for individuals earning less than $400,000 and couples earning less than $450,000.
