re: Taxpayer Relief Act???????


quote:

How does not know that a 2% tax holiday expiring would result in a TWO percent increase?


Geezus.....I knew there was a provision put in place 2 years as a temporary "give back" I didn't recall the fricking percentage......excuse the hell out of me.

quote:

also feel that the unemployment extensions that were temporary need to end


Why in the hell wasn't this cut, but extended? shite if they're giving out free money, why not reward the folks who are working over the folks who are on vacation...err....unemployed. The longer people are getting unemployment, the longer they have little motivation to take a job.

why wasn't it put to a halt last year prior to the elections?

Because that would've required a vote. Without having to vote on it, it would have expired at the end of the year as it was designed to do in the original bill. Which is exactly what happened.

Well it seems like the timing that was put in the bill was pretty good......just like the timing of the "affordable care act"

Just admit you were wrong and call it a day.

re: Taxpayer Relief Act???????


How am I wrong in saying that the unemployment assistance should be cut?
