Cantor: House Republicans have votes for tax, spending "Plan B"
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric Cantor said on Thursday that House Republicans will have enough votes to pass their "Plan B" alternative package of tax increases on income above $1 million coupled with spending cuts.
Cantor told a news conference that the vote shows "concrete action" to deal with looming year-end "fiscal cliff" of tax hikes and spending cuts. He added that Republicans intend to stay in Washington after the vote to keep working on a fiscal cliff solution.
