WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats are mostly satisfied with a compromise bill extending payroll tax cuts and benefits for the long-term unemployed through 2012, and it should be pushed through Congress quickly, the party's House leader said Thursday.
The remarks by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came hours after a post-midnight announcement by the two lead negotiators, Rep. David Camp, R-Mich., and Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., that only technical issues and the drafting of legislative language remained.
