FILE - This July 1, 2013 file photo shows Sen. John Thune, R-S.D. speaking with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington. A bill to renew a package of more than 50 expired tax breaks cleared its first hurdle in the Senate Tuesday. Other hurdles remain, however. The Senate voted 96 to 3 to open debate on the bill, which has strong backing from the business community but would add about $85 billion to the budget deficit. Almost every year, Congress routinely renews the tax breaks. This year, though, they were allowed to expire at the start of the year. The Senate bill would extend the tax breaks through 2015.
