Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda reacts after Japan's lower house voted to double the country's sales tax to 10 percent over three years during a plenary session of the lower house of Parliament in Tokyo Tuesday, June 26, 2012. But the vote in a bid to rein in the country's bulging national deficit may have weakened Noda's grip on power as the measure faced strong opposition within the ruling party led by party elder Ichiro Ozawa that believes the tax hike is premature and will further weaken the economy. Ozawa and his supporters have threatened to bolt the party over the tax issue. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)
