Republicans Said to Consider Spending Cuts in Bill

House Republican leaders are considering giving members a chance to vote on spending cuts to firm up support for House Speaker John Boehner’s tax measure, said a Republican lawmaker and a congressional aide who spoke on condition of anonymity.

In announcing his proposal yesterday to raise tax rates for income above $1 million, Boehner had said his plan wouldn’t reverse automatic spending cuts set to take effect in January.
