The House of Representatives will not be in session on Thursday, according to NBC.

Citing House Republican leadership aides, NBC reports that GOP leaders have not called members back to Washington, D.C.

Time for the White House and Congress to reach a deal to avert or delay the so-called fiscal cliff is running out. Tax increases and government spending cuts are set to begin next week.

President Barack Obama cut his holiday break short, and is set to arrive back in Washington on Thursday to press for a deal.

A source close to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that there were no serious talks between House leadership and the White House since the breakdown last week.
