HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — U.S. House Republican leader John Boehner is criticizing Democratic leaders in Congress for postponing a vote on extending Bush-era tax cuts until after the Nov. 2 election.

Boehner (BAY-ner) spoke Friday night at a dinner for Pennsylvania Republicans in the state capital of Harrisburg.

He says Democrats postponed the vote because the a Republican-led majority would have voted to extend all the tax cuts. Democratic leaders want to allow tax cuts for higher-income Americans to expire on Jan. 1 to help reduce the deficit.

Boehner also says Republicans probably have a better chance to score big election wins in Pennsylvania than anywhere else. Both a U.S. Senate seat and the governor's office are up for grabs.
