Senators pitch bipartisan payroll tax plan

President Obama continues to press congress to extend the popular payroll tax cut. So far, Republicans and Democrats have been unable to agree on how to pay for the tax break. Now two senators are offering a compromise to extend the savings to millions of Americans.  The plan would still include a so-called "millionaires tax" to pay for it, but small businesses would be given an exemption.

Today on American Morning, Christine Romans talks with Senators Susan Collins and Claire McCaskill to get the details of their bi-partisan plan.
