This is the chant of politicians, each aware that they face re-election challenges in 2012. So what do they they do? They sell you a boondoggle of a program.
HR 3630, The Tax Cut Plan which continues the reduction of Social Security deductions from your paycheck from 6.2% to 4.2%. It was never a savings to the tax payer. Indeed it is an added financial burden to future and current homeowners and fails to reimburse the depleted Social Security lock-box.
FINALLY, if you do get Tax Cut, it is additional income and TAXABLE. Be prepared to pay higher taxes just to keep more of your money!
