So congress is currently debating whether or not to extend the tax cuts put in place during Bush Jr's reign. There are good arguments I have seen as to why not to extend these tax cuts but I have yet to hear many good point coming from the opposition. Unfortunately my main source of news comes from NPR which albeit a good news station, it veers very much to the left. Personally I think it would be more important to use this money to help drive down the national debt, than to put it into the pockets of the populace where a good amount of the money will go into foreign markets anyway. Obama has an idea to suspend the tax cuts to all individuals making more than $250k annually, I think this is a good compromise. Congress already approved a similar bill to help aid small businesses, so this tax cut will only really effect individuals. What do you think?
