    ya, you guys got that talking point down. the Bush tax cuts were only for the rich.
    But the Republicans tired to compromise on these Obama tax cuts and so far the DEMOCRATS have been hemming and hawing. so the little midget should shut his mouth, it's far too big for his body anyway.

    Social Security, which is funded by the payroll tax, does NOT have the funds to pay on its promised liabilities. If you support the idea of SS, which I assume you do, why would you want cut off its source of revenue? If this tax cut is so important, why would Democrats not support reduced spending federal spending elsewhere? Is the federal government running that lean and mean???

    It's another example of the "rob Peter to pay Paul" mentality that the Left seems to feel passes for sane fiscal policy. Cutting the payroll tax takes money out of Social Security...a program that is already rapidly approaching insolvency. Quite obviously you can't make the payroll tax cut permanent because it will bankrupt Social Security. Unfortunately the Obama Stimulus did so little to stimulate the economy that we can't raise taxes on anyone because to do so will smother what little recovery we do have. Too bad we couldn't have spent that trillion dollars on some stuff that worked. Solyndra? Shovel ready jobs?
