After two Saturday votes, Obama and Democrats in Congress are forced to negotiate over Bush-era tax cuts, now more likely to be extended for all Americans – including the wealthy.
In their radio addresses Saturday, President Obama and Rep. Kevin McCarthy focused on the Republican 'Pledge to America.' It sets the scene for the next month’s campaign rhetoric.
