The Bush tax cuts are due to expire. Why would Pres. Obama not allow them to expire in total in the short term? This would take the Republican's arguement of "fundamental fairness" away for the time being. They argue if the middle class gets tax cuts, why not the rich? After all.....the rich create jobs. Except they don't.
Once the Bush tax cuts are gone, we can listen to the Republican's suggestion's on how to provide for tax cuts to the uber rich, and how they would be paid for. It seems to me this would force the Republicans to address the true fiscal ramifications of a massive tax cut to such a small portion of the population, instead of allowing them to continue to act as though the end of the Bush cuts, are equal to NEW taxes.
Where have I gone wrong?
