News Roundup: Senate Dems Backing Away from Payroll Tax Cut Extension

July 20, 2012

Happy Friday and welcome back to the Alley. Let's get right to the headlines.

Senate Democrats are cooling to the idea of extending the payroll tax cut holiday, The Hill reports.

A $606 billion Defense appropriations bill passed the House on Thursday, according to The Hill. The bill isn't likely to go beyond the lower chamber:

The Senate has generally balked at the House-passed bills because they break the spending deal reached last year. President Obama has also threatened to veto the Defense appropriations bill because it's $3 billion higher than the Pentagon's budget request and $8 billion above the spending caps in last year's Budget Control Act.

Members are pushing Republican leaders in the House to let the farm bill come for a floor vote before November, but to little avail, Roll Call reports.

House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor opens up about cultural differences and tolerance among Americans in an interview with Buzzfeed.
