美国国会众议院共和党领袖星期四夜晚突然取消就议长贝纳提出的税收案进行的表决。按照贝纳的方案,收入100万美元以上的家庭税率将提高。

这一事态发展使奥巴马总统和国会有关避免年底“财政悬崖”的艰难谈判更加复杂。

贝纳议长发表简短声明说,他没有得到足够的党内支持来通过这一方案。早些时候他曾预计方案能够得到通过。

不过,参议院领导人说,即使众议院通过此案,民主党主控的参议院也绝不会让其过关;而奥巴马总统则誓言,参众两院如果通过了贝纳的方案,他将否决此方案。奥巴马建议减税只适用于家庭收入不到40万美元的人。

本星期早些时候,奥巴马总统曾说,他和贝纳已经相对接近达成协议。如果双方无法达成妥协,美国在1月1日就要跌入所谓“财政悬崖”,也就是自动削减5000亿美元的政府开支,并使几乎所有辛勤工作的美国人都要多缴税。
