Reid Says Democratic Senators Have Concerns on Obama Tax Deal

Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the Democratic caucus he heads has “wide ranging” concerns about the deal President Barack Obama reached with Republicans on tax cuts.

“We’re working through the issues people have” with the agreement Obama announced yesterday to temporarily extend all of the Bush-era tax cuts, Reid told reporters today at the U.S. Capitol.

Reid, a Nevada Democrat, made his comments as Obama was conducting a nationally televised news conference to push for congressional approval of the deal.
