LAS VEGAS (AP) — Add payroll tax cuts to the long list of issues that separate Democratic Congresswoman Shelley Berkley and Republican Sen. Dean Heller.

Both want to extend tax cuts for workers, but Nevada’s 2012 Senate candidates don’t agree on how Congress should pay for it so federal deficits don’t rise.

Heller proposed a bill last week that would have paid for the tax cuts by reducing the size of the federal work force and extending the current federal employee pay freeze by three years.

He also says taxpayers who feel they are not taxed enough should be able to donate cash to the U.S. Treasury on their tax returns.

Berkley supports a Democratic effort to tax earnings over a million dollars.

    Nowhere in the linked Cultnews ctairle is any reference to Janeane Garofalo.As to Rush’s behavior, my guess would be he was probably strung out when he agreed to appear.
