Obama Wants No Other Issues on Payroll Tax Bill

President Barack Obama is raising the threat of a veto if Republicans try attaching controversial oil pipeline or other language to a bill renewing payroll tax cuts and unemployment coverage.
  

His comments Wednesday intensify their year-end partisan showdown.
  

Obama’s warning — which prompted an immediate and strong response from the GOP — signaled that there is no easy end in sight as the two sides maneuver over renewing tax reductions and jobless benefits that without congressional action expire Jan. 1 — just as the 2012 election year begins.
  

Top House Republicans are working to overcome conservative resistance to GOP legislation extending this year’s 2 percentage point reduction in the 6.2 percent Social Security payroll tax for another year.
