Leader Eric Cantor told a Republican caucus meeting Tuesday morning that a vote on a Republican plan to avoid some $600 billion in taxes and spending could be this week, U.S. Representative Paul Broun told Reuters.

Earlier, a congressional aide said the plan would prevent taxes from rising on incomes below $1 million.
