Boehner: ?A Vote to Adjourn is a Vote to Raise Taxes? | John Boehner - 8th District of Ohio Boehner's right. If Congress does nothing those Bush tax cuts sunset at the end of the year AND THEY HAVE TO DAMN WELL KNOW IT. So, by punting the issue of extending them, they took the coward's way out, but it still boils down to saying they are going to let the Bush tax cuts sunset. I guess Democrats think voter won't notice this. November is coming liberals!
