Bob Casey Champions Payroll Tax Cut Extension

Share With Friends

Everybody’s focused on the Bush tax cuts portion of the austerity crisis, but the biggest problem we’ll face in January is the expiration of the payroll tax cut.

Barack Obama included a payroll tax cut extension in his opening offer to Republicans, but shockingly few Democratic lawmakers had been talking about this until it turned up in the President’s plan.

So let’s all take a moment to thank Bob Casey for taking up the fight in the Senate. Hopefully his leadership will persuade more of his Congressional Democratic colleagues to make a bigger deal about this.
