TPM: Senator Levin Says Tax Cuts Debate Could Start Thursday
Dem Senator: Tax Cuts Debate Could Start Thursday
Christina Bellantoni

September 21, 2010

Sen. Carl Levin said this afternoon while there is not an agreement finalized yet, the tax cuts debate could begin as early as Thursday.

He said he believes leadership will allow votes on both the Democrats' middle-class only position and the Republicans' plan to freeze tax rates at the Bush-era levels including the rich.

As we reported yesterday, Senate Democrats have a plot in hopes of boxing in Republicans on the issue of tax cuts for the rich.

Levin wasn't sure the vote would start Thursday but said it would be this week. We're checking in with leadership. Senate Democrats plan to start debating their campaign finance measure the DISCLOSE Act tomorrow, Harry Reid spokesman Jim Manley tweeted.

Both Levin (D-MI) and Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) told TPM at a press conference they want to see the cuts extended for the middle class only.

Late Update: Manley tells TPM nothing has been agreed to yet, and nothing has been scheduled.
