About That Vote on the Tax Cuts

Not happening before the election, after all:

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) told reporters that Republican threats to block a vote unless Democrats extend all the tax cuts, including for the wealthy, make the timing impossible.

“It’s my understanding from talking with other Senators…that the clock’s running out,” Harkin said. There’s just no way we can get anything done on this before then because of Republican intransigence on this issue.”

And the House wants the Senate to vote first, meaning, it seems, no votes until the lame duck session.
