Sorry but the current rates have already been raised in the original Bush plan which was adopted by Congress and will soon go into effect.What tax cut? Do you always parrot the party line? There are no tax cuts only extension of the current rates!
Sometimes, language is just what it is despite the desire to nitpick. I plead guilty myself. I absolutely loathe the term "Tea Party" because there is no Tea Party. There is a Republican Party. There is a Democratic Party. There is a Libertarian Party. There is a Socialist Party. But there is not a Tea Party. There is a tea party movement within the Republican Party. But I realize that I fight a losing battle in the larger world on this fine point and it does no good to keep harping on it. Although I must give proper kudos to the good Reverend here since I brought it up he has dropped the caps from the term in his usage. Bravo to him for that.
The term "deregulation" is another such case in point. Very few industries have actually been deregulated to the point where there is no regulation at all and thus true to the term. But 'deregulation' has come to mean a decrease in regulation and the name has stuck and is with us no matter what a grammarian may think.
I think you will just have to accept that 'tax cuts' mean cutting back on the scheduled raises that go into effect in 2011. Or you can get in line with me on my Tea Party crusade with one of your own.
