RPT-U.S. stock futures fall on worries over U.S. 'fiscal cliff'

TOKYO, Dec 21 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures fell sharply after U.S. House of Representative Speaker John Boehner conceded that his tax bill designed to help avert the “fiscal cliff” lacked the votes to pass.

S&P 500 stock futures fell 1.6 percent, while Dow Jones stock futures and Nasdaq futures both lost 1.5 percent.
