This is the Huffington Post Hill on Thursday, May 27, 2010: cancel the extension of unemployment
Even after the Democratic leadership scaled back its bill to re-authorize several domestic aid programs, conservative rankings reduced its impact on the federal budget deficit by $50 billion. and-
Democrats have been in a state of unhappiness.
The House leadership met shortly before the press release to find a way forward, but there are major obstacles to all roads.
Mainly: Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, told the Huffington Post that he was reaching an agreement on an amendment that Republicans could propose.
But it costs a lot.
The house has been planning to pass the bill and go out of town during Memorial Day.
If any changes have been made to the bill, it may languish during the holidays as the program and benefits expire. "We're ready.
The house was delivered.
"We will pass," bauckas said.
"Agreement must be reached with Republicans on the ballot.
We will have to reach some compromise on the amendment.
When asked if the House would vote tonight, a tantrum's Stacey Hoyer, speaking at the leadership meeting, said: "We're still talking!
"Chris Van Holen said they are discussing possible changes with their members and may end before the break ---
But he didn't say they would vote tonight.
Sandy Levin has been working on the Blue Dog.
Pelosi, who works at Jared Polis, is not happy with the hedge fund bug fix.
It is very difficult for the house to leave the town. "Let's go!
Two members of Congress shouted on the floor, at least one of them a Democrat.
"People are really tired," one Dem told Huffington Post . ".
"What you see is stubborn success.
"Democrats are considering removing the COBRA health insurance subsidy.
The workers were supported by Blue Dogs.
"It's obscene," Grant chairman Dave Obby told Huffington Post Hill . ".
The Blue Dog Henry Queller says he tends to support the bill if the deficit impact is reduced to 60 billion, in part because he gave up Cobra.
John Larson told Huffington Post Hill that COBRA cut is not yet finalized. "COBRA?
When Dick Durbin was told what the house was thinking about, he said.
"For many who sympathize with the unemployed, it is painful to see their Cobra cut off. " (
Durbin met with Barney Farnk in the House to discuss measures to keep his credit card fees in the final Wall Street reform bill. )
An official at the leaders' meeting told Huffington Post Hill that cuts in aid to states are under consideration.
Obviously, the governors did a poor job of lobbying.
"They need to do some heavy work," said an assistant Dem leader . ".
Or some improvement.
"Everything is pending, but, so far, the House is planning to vote here tomorrow.
Company lobbyists fighting for loopholes
One of the ways Democrats are proposing to pay long-term unemployment benefits is to close a tax loophole that rewards companies that work overseas, killing a bunch of birds at once.
However, the Blue Dog of the Republican Party and its alliance did not support it, arguing that it required the United StatesS.
The difference between companies paying foreign tax rates and US tax ratesS.
Tax rates put them at a disadvantage.
One of the companies lobbying against closing the loophole is IBM.
According to the documents submitted by the SEC, IBM "permanently reinvested overseas" $26 billion.
The number of it since 2005S.
The number of employees dropped from 134,000 to 105,000.
The bill it lobbied against included research and development credit that would benefit IBM.
Move forward in Congress
It is expected that the Senate Armed Forces will pass an amendment that will eventually abolish the "do not say ". ".
The panel has taken a full day off. door session.
The House may vote on delegates.
Patrick Murphy's amendment to the defense authorization act quickly abolished dart.
But if the repeal of the amendment is passed with liberal support, and then those liberals are finally released on bail in an anti-war gesture, does the House Democrats have a vote for the basic bill?

Just a few weeks ago, Frank appointed his own bipartisan committee to study how to reduce America's bloated military budget.
Frank attacked what he called "this intangible concept"America]
"There is a need to be some sort of world superhero," he said, and Wyden, who is ready for re-election, is already defending himself: "Look, not all defense spending is helping national security . ".
"Wasting defense spending is a waste!
