House Republicans are expected to reject a plan to extend the payroll tax-break approved by a bipartisan vote in the Senate over the weekend. House Speaker John Boehner announced Republicans in the House would vote against the proposal Monday. Boehner is calling on Senate leaders to negotiate an alternative bill before legislators leave for the holidays.
