The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted to pass the Job Protection and Recession Prevention Act, 256-171. The bill would have extended all the Bush-era tax cuts, and will most likely go nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate. 19 Democrats joined the Republicans, while one Republican joined the Democrats. This vote means both chambers have voiced their opinions on the Bush-era tax cuts. The Senate has passed the Democratic plan, and the Republican was turned down. While in the House, the Republican plan passed, while the Democratic plan was turned down.
