Senate leaders propose 2-month extension of payroll tax cut

Senate negotiators were unable to work out a comprehensive deal on extending the payroll tax cut and instead are proposing a two-month extension, two sources told CNN on Friday.

The possible deal still needs approval from the full caucuses of both parties, which are meeting Friday evening.

    @ bugs ears, now you already KNOW that when the time is right that will happen, meanwhile we all still have to prove ourselves worthy! How we live on this earth will determine our fate then, and allowing ppl to be homeless and hungry isnt worthy!!

    The USA is sposed to be a great nation but given the amount of suffering that is not only allowed but encouraged says otherwise! It amazes me that our gov isnt willing to make concessions to take better care of the hard working class, children & elderly!

    @ chrissy, those who search for God like their searching for gold are always longing for Jesus kingdom to reign now, with Satan banished for eternity.

    @ bugs ears, many of us have already found GOD, now its our job to carry out his mission! And a very big part of that is to take of people less fortunate or unable to care for theirselves & teach them how to do it, without worrying *whats in it for us*

    It seems to me that Ad-hocism is now what runs our country. Those in the Congress are not willing to seek a cure to our economic & other ills but rather get by temporary measures.
    Elections are what have been hanging heavy on their minds the past two years or so.

    On your 12:22 pm. This would be termed Socialism in some quarters.

    @ saywhat, it is what it is! And are you implying that our gov should just do a little to get by, so they can take time off? That 2 month deal is a joke and we all know it! Whats the point in doing a job if you DONT intend to do your very best???

    No honor amongst thieves they say! The american gov and/or corporate america have been stealing from the sweat of the american working class for along time! Its time for them to get their priorities straight! We are expected to budget on much less
