Lieberman Favors Extension of Bush-Era Tax Rates

Lieberman Favors Extension of Bush-Era Tax Rates 14 Sep 2010 With the focus now shifting to the Senate over a potential compromise on the expiring Bush-era income-tax cuts, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, the Connecticut independent who is aligned with the Democrats, said on Monday that he favored maintaining the lower rates for everyone, including the wealthiest Americans, for at least one more year. At least a dozen House DemocRATs and four Senate Democrats, in addition to Mr. Lieberman, have expressed concerns about raising taxes -- even on the richest 2 percent of taxpayers.
