Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) called on Congress to extend the Bush-era tax cuts on incomes under $250,000 and avoid another damaging fight over the debt ceiling. He said the government needs new revenue immediately in order to deal with the long term deficits caused by rising health care costs and retiring baby boomers.
