Our fourth story OutFront – let's make a deal. Or at least part of a deal?
We may not be any closer to an agreement on the entire fiscal cliff, but there has been a big push in Washington to get at least one item signed, sealed, and delivered – an extension of Bush tax cuts for people making less than $250,000. Democrats in particular have supported this, with the hopes that popular support can force Republicans to extend these cuts without extending cuts for higher earners.
And yesterday, one Republican Congressman broke ranks with his party and said he agrees with this plan. Will more follow? Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder of Kansas, who is on the Appropriations Committee, comes OutFront tonight.
