California's congressional delegation weighs in on Bush tax cuts

Like most Democrats, Sacramento Rep. Doris Matsui supports President Barack Obama's plan to extend the middle-class tax cuts for most families while denying them to individuals making more than $200,000 and couples earning more than $250,000. Most Republicans, including Reps. Dan Lungren of Gold River and Tom McClintock of Elk Grove, are advocating across-the-board cuts, with no income limit. As the House prepares for a vote today, the tax cut issue is roiling Congress, dominating its lame-duck session.
