    You don't actually expect any liberals to answer that, do you?

    For those that want the extension, what are you willing to see Congress cut to pay for it? We have got to quit spending beyond are means. Goes for the govt. as well as people.

    its more like a ten percent increase in taxes. a 3% increase of the tax rate is much more than a 3 percent increase in the taxes

    most of those in the top 2% aren't using much if anything of the direct programs funded by the income tax. we need to stop spending on stuff that is not clearly constitutional

    To which extension are you referring; the extension of the tax breaks for the wealthy or the extension of unemployment benefits? Letting the taxes on the wealthy revert to Clinton-era rates (which were much lower than the Reagan-era rates) would more than make up for the cost of the extension of unemployment benefits.
