Tax Policies and Deals Ricocheting Across the Senate
As we all know, a fat $858 Billion tax cut plan is wading across the Senate and the White House these days. Law makers, on the other hand, are sabering a rush to prevent a supposed New Year tax hike, from striking every American household. That would be the perfect New Year gift from the current administration.
The best part of Bush era was perhaps known as the tax policies. That’s why, Republicans voted in favor of extending Bush’s tax plans that later on got approved this time around. The currently approved tax cut policy will be prevailing beyond the December 31st – 2010 timeline, in order to support all sorts of income levels and families across the country.
Meanwhile, there are healthier prospects for House passage, which are all appearing in a more brightened form. Lawmakers have already acknowledged the need to avoid the expiration of Bush era tax cut plans, which is sort of forcing a lot of democrats to make grumpy faces. The Dems think that the prevalence of Tax Cut policies will include giveaways for the rich, as some conservative Republicans blasted the price tag.
To address such concerns, President Obama had to say this:
• “Gentlemen, we need to set aside our differences and work towards supporting a package, which is a win-win situation for all American families out there. Plus, the businesses and the U.S. economy will fare well too. I know that not every member of Congress likes every piece of this bill, and it includes some provisions that I oppose. But as a whole, this package will grow our economy, create jobs and help middle class families across the country.”
• “As this bill moves to the House of Representatives, I hope that members from both parties can come together in a spirit of common purpose to protect American families and our economy as a whole by passing this essential economic package.”
