WASHINGTON, D.C. – It’s likely Congress and President Barack Obama will work out an extension of the two-percent payroll tax cut through the end of this year.  However, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann says she will be voting no on the plan.

She says Speaker of the House John Boehner and other Republicans are being forced to go along with it.

Besides the payroll tax cut, the bill would also extend unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless and block a 27 percent cut in reimbursements for doctors who treat Medicare patients.

The legislation would cost roughly $150 billion.  Final Congressional approval could come by Friday.
