Republican leadership aides tell CNN that after votes Tuesday, the House will go into recess but return if the Senate agrees to come back into session and work out differences in extending the payroll tax cuts that expire at the end of the year.
The Democratic-controlled Senate on Saturday passed a two-month extension of the tax cuts, which amount to about $1,000 for the average American, and sent it to the Republican-controlled House for its approval. Congressional and White House negotiators had tried to work out a one-year extension, but the Senate fell back to the two-month extension to buy more time for more negotiations without the cuts expiring on December 31.
The House Tuesday has scheduled votes to reaffirm that it favors a yearlong extension and that it wants the Senate to return to work out differences. A vote scheduled for Monday night on the Senates plan was canceled.
Democratic leadership aides in the Senate insist they wont budg e on their position -- they wont negotiate until the House passes the two-month extension that the Senate passed with bipartisan support.
