@Mame,
I think the concept is wrong too.

I thought the Senate was a revising chamber that looked at legislation passed by Congress.

So it's Congress, not the Senate that raises taxes.

I may be wrong.

The House MUST initiate all spending bills...the Senate may (or may not)
agree to the bill as passed by the House. (Usually the bill will be subjected to the process of reconciliation...whereby the two chambers agree to changes and then are able to pass the bill without the supermajority most bills need to pass in the Senate.)

@Frank Apisa,
So I'm right then, it's the House that decides taxes, the Senate modifies them, rubber stamps them or kicks them out, like the Lords but with a lot more power.

Hint: they are each a style that various journalists use. There is at least one national paper/journalist using each style. Read some newspapers.
