    Those "Bush tax cuts", as I unnerstanit, had a sunset clause.
    Why hasn't the sun been allowed to set?

    Well Obama redid them. But to the larger point, when doesn anything the government do "sunset". If you fall for that one, you need to go back to the kiddie table.
    But I say make the tax cuts permanent.

    Because no one wanted to raise taxes on the middle class during a recession.

    why do democrats always highlight the "upper" tax cuts, when republicans cut everyone's taxes. They never say upper or even imply, They just say here's a standard rate, boom, done. I know liberals love excpetions an escape hatches for THEIR rich folk, but I like more standadized rules for everyone.
