Taxes still a stumbling block in debt talks | Reuters

Taxes still a stumbling block in debt talks | Reuters:


"There could be a way out.

Last week, Cantor said he could support closing some tax breaks if they were offset with tax cuts elsewhere.

Democrats have proposed a range of tax cuts to boost the sputtering economy, including an extension of the current payroll tax cut and a permanent credit for research and development costs.

That approach would allow both sides to declare victory -- Republicans would get a deal that doesn't raise taxes overall, and Democrats could say they raised taxes on the rich and helped bring down the 9.2 percent unemployment rate."
