AP Sources: House leaders accept Senate tax terms on short-term payroll tax cut By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' GOP aides say House Republican leaders have agreed to a two-month extension of Social Security payroll tax cuts and federal unemployment benefits.

The move reflects a retreat by House Republicans and appears to all but assure 160 million workers aren't hit by a 2 percentage point increase in the payroll tax on Jan. 1.

House leaders were to brief rank-and-file lawmakers on the proposal on a conference call later Thursday.
