Ryan, Conrad Say U.S. Congress Will Approve Obama Tax-Cut Deal

President Barack Obama’s tax-cut deal with Republicans will pass in Congress, budget leaders of both parties predicted, as they disagreed on whether the plan might be altered.

Republican Paul Ryan, who becomes House Budget Committee chairman in January, and Democrat Kent Conrad, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, said the plan will be sent to Obama’s desk though Conrad said he hoped House Democrats would change estate tax provisions he considers too generous to the wealthy.
