Boehner to Senate: Let's bargain on payroll tax
Boehner wants Senate to negotiate over payroll tax cut, Senate leader shows no sign of budging
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' House Republican leaders are renewing their call for the Democratic-led Senate to bargain with them and try to end the stalemate over extending a payroll tax cut and jobless benefits.

House Speaker John Boehner and other top House Republicans met Wednesday, saying Senate negotiators should join them in a search for compromise.

Minutes earlier, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released a letter to Boehner urging him to bring the House back to Washington. Reid wants the House to approve a bipartisan Senate-approved bill extending the tax cut and jobless benefits for two months, and then bargain over a yearlong extension.



House Republicans want to extend the tax cut and jobless benefits for a year.

The payroll tax paid and jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed ends Jan. 1.
