Washington (CNN) - The congressional battle over the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts continued Sunday when Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch said he would accept a two-year extension of the current tax levels, and Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden said he would accept a one-year extension.
"I've said that neither side has the votes to get what they want, so I think we're going to have to kick it over for about two years," Hatch said on CNN's "State of the Union."
Washington (CNN) - The top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee laid out his plan Sunday for the lame-duck session of Congress, which includes the passage of the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty).
