House Speaker John Boehner said the House would vote this week on a tax-only measure to keep rates low for most Americans.
- Two congressional sources said the vote would probably be held on Thursday.
- The tax-only measure is being called "Plan B" by Republicans and they are looking at it as an alternative to a broader plan that the speaker has been negotiating with the White House.
- Talks between the White House and House Republicans have not yet yielded a broad deal, but the two sides have moved closer together in recent days.
- One core question is whether Boehner can sell the Republican rank-and-file on any kind of broader deal with President Obama to avert the automatic tax hikes and spending cuts known as the fiscal cliff.
