    mean temporary.

    The Bush tax cuts they scream about were designed to expire.

    that was the promoise made about them that they were a temporary fix to get the economy going.

    There was no go after they were done so the republicans danced in the aisles when the housing market heated up.


    then even while we told them the housing market was going to crash they told us we were doom sayers.


    Then it crashed.

    guess what is still here?

    there stupid LIED about temporary tax cuts.

    Now they are going to call it TAXMAGEDON if these tax cuts are NOT reupped until the end of time.


    Im fucking sick of their lies and gamemanship in place of real leadership.

    That doesn't mean they were intended to be temporary. Putting in a sunset date was simply a trick--legislation passed using budget reconciliation procedures (as the tax cuts were) can't raise the deficit after the 10-year budget window.

    The Bush tax cuts obviously did raise deficits. But by putting in a January 1, 2011 sunset date with a wink and a nod, Senate Republicans could argue that the tax cuts wouldn't be increasing the deficit in 2011. They had to fire the Senate parliamentarian back then to make it work but here we are. Their intent has always been to campaign on making them permanent.

    Yet the CBO made a statement saying "to not extend the Bush tax cuts would directly create an economic cliff"

    Yeah...let's raise everyone's taxes just after April/May is showing the very real possibility of a recession returning.
    Idiots.

    yeah that is why we just want to up the top tier taxes.

    those guys are the only one who can afford to help the country right now.

    Hell they had them for MUCH longer than planned and they are NOT creating jobs with the extra money anyway

    Lets take note here American people.

    When a republican tells you a tax cut is Temporary YOU KNOW they are lying .

    They only call it that to get it passed.
