Payroll Tax Cuts Get House Approval

Posted by wlpo on December 23, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) – The House has passed a two-month renewal of payroll tax cuts for 160 million workers and unemployment benefits for millions of jobless, giving President Barack Obama a resounding
victory over Republicans who control the House.

The Senate approved the bill earlier Friday. The measure was passed by voice vote in a virtually empty House chamber despite lingering grumbling from tea party Republicans.
