Common Sense Breaks Through the Noise?

   Although I am not weighing in on issue as a whole, it is refreshing to see someone get past the marquee talking points and hit an issue that has real world, short-term impact.  Although it comes about a week into the debate, Rep. David Camp has spoken out about the nonsensical two-month extension to the payroll tax reduction that I addressed in an earlier post.  Apparently many are content to hand the Democrats a victory in this battle which has been disingenuously framed as a "tax cut" when all it would do is maintain the status quo.  It is similar to the fight in 2010 over extending the Bush tax cuts.  As President Obama said at the time, "For the next two years, every American family will keep their tax cuts."  Because by all rights, taxes should be higher...  OK, OK, I said I'm not weighing in on the issue as a whole...
