 CNN News from here Atlanta, Georgia straight to your classrooms, I’m Carl Azuz, this is CNN Student News. Today we’re starting something called a payroll1 tax. Here’s the deal on the payroll tax from A to Z. Americans have been getting a break on their federal payroll tax, what does this mean is that they’re taking home a bit more of what they earn. For example, someone making around $50,000 this year took home an extra $1,500 thanks to the payroll tax break. The government has to take action to extent the payroll tax cuts in the next year, otherwise the payroll tax goes back up and Americans see less money in their paychecks. What Democrats2 and Republicans don’t agree on is how to pay for this, extending the payroll tax break would cost the government about 200 billion dollars, Democrats including the President want to pay for this by raising the taxes on millionaires whom they believe can afford to pay more. Republicans don’t want taxes go up for anyone during a lousy economy, they wanna pay for the extension by cutting government’s spending. Well the two sides found common ground may be, may be not, but no matter how much you or your parents make, you’ll probably notice. There’re few weeks left for Congress to vote on whether or not to extend the payroll tax cut. During a speech yesterday President Obama urged Congress to act immediately, Democrats and Republicans have both been offering plans on this, but the proposals have been criticized sometimes form members of the same parties who offer them.

Yesterday we brought you headlines from // and far, far away, today we’re going a little bit farther, like 600 light years, a light year is the distance that light travels in a year. And 600 light years away is where NASA’s scientists say they discovered a first confirmed planet what they called the habitable zone that means in theory that planet could have liquid water in its surface. It’s found during the Kepler mission which cost around 600 million dollars, back in 2009 NASA launched this giant telescope out into the space, it’s exploring the Milky3 Way Galaxy4 for stars and their nearby planets. Scientist were looking for planets that could like earth, this one which is called Kepler 20-2b is the first one that NASA says it found could be similar to ours. Chad Milers looks to the comparisons. 
Here’s what we know, we have our sun and we have our blue planet, our earth’s rotation5, our orbit around our sun. The sun that the sun they found up here, Kepler 20-2b system slightly smaller than our sun, slightly cooler than our sun, but the same type of class, the same type of sun, and then they found this planet rotating around it almost the same exact distance away, in fact, we take 365 days to go around approximately, this planet takes 290 days to go around. So it’s almost the exact perfect spot
