Stocks end mixedNEW YORK — Stocks closed mixed Thursday as traders waited to see whether a tax compromise brokered by the White House and Republicans will pass the Democratic-controlled House. House Democrats pledged Thursday to reject the tax deal as it is currently written. The compromise reached by President Barack Obama and Republican leaders would extend tax cuts at all income levels for two years. House Democrats want tax rates for the wealthiest Americans to revert to their previous levels.
