December 4, 2010 6:19 a.m.

The vote this morning was 53-36 to extend the Bush tax cuts on incomes below $250,000 — seven votes short of the 60 needed.

Check out how the AP plays this: “Bill blocked to let upper-income tax cuts expire.”

A second vote is underway on extending the tax cuts on incomes under $1 million. That, too, is expected to be blocked by Senate Republicans.
