News Roundup: Senate Takes Up Dems' Tax-Cut Bill

July 25, 2012
Good morning and welcome back. Onward to the headlines.

The Senate will take up a tax-cut measure today when the upper chamber votes on the Democratic plan, a $250 billion bill that would extend the current rates on everyone but the highest earners, reports the Associated Press. The bill won't get the 60 votes it needs.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is suggesting that the key to avoiding the Defense sequester could come from last year's talks led by Vice President Joe Biden, The Hill reports.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday that she shouldn't have speculated about the White House's responsibility for national security leaks because she didn't know the source of the unauthorized disclosures, the AP reports. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney used her remarks to criticize President Obama.
