Congress sends payroll tax cut bill to Obama
WASHINGTON – Congress has passed legislation renewing a payroll tax cut for 160 million workers and jobless benefits for millions more, backing the main items on President Barack Obama's jobs agenda in a rare burst of Washington bipartisanship.
The Senate approved the $143 billion measure by a bipartisan 60-36 vote. That tally came minutes after the House approved it by a sweeping 293-132 vote.
Obama is expected to sign it into law shortly after returning from a West Coast fundraising swing.
