Stuck On Capitol Hill Over Payroll Tax Cut

WASHINTON (AP) - Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are in a stalemate.

Republicans in the House have rejected a Senate approved plan to extend the payroll tax and jobless benefits for two months.

The Republicans, who want a one-year extension, want the Senate to return to Washington to negotiate. If there's no action taken before the end of the year, payroll taxes for workers go up Jan. 1.
