Washington (CNN) – Senate Democrats may soon follow the House Democrats lead and bring tax cut votes to the Senate floor.
According to Jim Manley, spokesman Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, those votes could take place either Friday or Saturday.
Senate Democrats are talking about at least two votes. First, the bill the House passed today to permanently extend tax cuts only for those making $250,000 or less. And then New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer's idea to extend tax cuts for those making up to $1 million.
It's also possible Republicans may get a vote on their goal of extending all tax cuts for all tax brackets permanently.
None of these is expected to get the 60 votes needed to pass.
But, like the House, many Senate Democrats argue it's important to get on the record with their preferences and priorities before a tax cut deal is done. Several sources in both parties say Administration and Congressional leaders are getting closer to a broad agreement that includes a compromise to extend all bush era tax rates temporarily.
