WASHINGTON — The GOP-controlled Senate Tuesday dealt President Bush and business a setback by cutting more than half the proposed $726 billion tax cut he argues is needed to pull the economy out of its torpor.
The 51-48 vote to keep tax cuts at $350 billion over 10 years reflected an increased concern in the chamber about the cost of the war in Iraq. Just a week ago, the body voted 62-38 to reject a similar attempt to reduce the size of the tax cuts.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
