The Wall Street Journal picks up a New York Times report of a claim by White House budget director Peter Orszag that the Senate in the next few weeks is going to pass the tax increase on "carried interest" of hedge fund, venture capital, real estate, oil and gas, and private equity fund managers.

My Washington Examiner article on this tax from last month is here.
