The House of Representatives is set to approve the short-term two-month payroll tax cut that they initially said no to with House Speaker John Boehner calling it “kicking the can down the road.” The bill has already passed in the Senate.
The House initially send the bill to a sub-committee, which in effect would have killed the bill without having to vote on it because payroll tax cuts were set to expire Dec 31st if no bill reached the president and in a sub-committee, the bill would not have passed on time.
Like so many other issues, this one seemed doomed to partisan politics with Congress seemingly deadlocked on so many issues. A recent CBS poll shows the approval rating of Congress at just 9%.
