This Week's Agenda: Tax Cuts and Lame Duck Business

Monday, December 13, 2010

Many Congressional Democrats are not happy with President Obama's compromise with Republicans on extending tax cuts. House Democrats showed that by voting not to bring up the tax bill last week. Callie Crossley, host of the Callie Crossley Show on WGBH in Boston, and Charlie Herman, economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC, look at how the Senate plans to vote today on the bill.

They'll also look at how this lame-duck Congress plans to deal with some of its notable remaining business, including "don't ask, don't tell," the "Dream Act," and what could transpire next in the drama-filled world of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

Guests:

Callie Crossley and Charlie Herman
