Sen. Casey unsure about Pres. Obama's tax plan
July 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- Democrat Bob Casey, who is running for a second term in U.S. Senate for Pennsylvania, says he hasn't decided whether to go along with President Barack Obama and Democratic leaders on a plan to allow tax rates to rise for people making $200,000 or families making $250,000 a year.
Casey in an interview Friday with The Associated Press touted himself as working to find compromise and while pushing for legislation he believed would encourage more hiring.
Senator Casey says he'd prefer to let tax rates rise on people who make $1 million or more.
His Republican challenger is Tom Smith, a newcomer to statewide politics from Armstrong County.
Casey has supported Obama's signature policies, and says his agreements with Republicans or Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney wouldn't be a long list.
