Tax Cuts

How come the Republicans are now getting in the way of my tax cuts?

I don't want my taxes to go up next month, and apparently the Republicans are doing what they can to make certain they do go up.  
What's up with that?

I guess they really are only for tax cuts for the Rich and the Dead?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just the opposite is true.  Actually, both repubs and dems want your payroll tax rate to stay where it is, and they are both working on their own approaches to doing just that.  The repubs want to make sure it gets extended out for the entire year, that is the main distinction at this point.  Actually the dems want that too I believe, but their approach is different.

Mis-assigning motives does not really help you make your case.

I concur the opposite is true... but what I believe is really going to happen is going to screw the American people no matter what... no matter which side 'wins'.  The middle class always loses.
Hear hear!
I'm really sorry to say that it is becoming clear to a lot of people that America has entered into a class war.  The Occupy movement shows this awareness has broken through into the mass consciousness.
