Obama would veto Republican House tax bill: White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama would veto a bill proposed by Republicans in the House of Representatives if it were approved by Congress and sent to his desk.

"If the President were presented with (it) he would veto the bill."
