    your grammar reeked but I got your point-you are correct. its a vote to extend the Bush tax rates (which got rid of the Clinton tax HIKES) for another two years.

    If you don't get a raise next year, was did you get a salary cut? Or, did you salary just not go up?

    taxes have already been cut. If they "expire" taxes will be raised. If it is extended. no one is getting a "cut", they will be paying the same. Wordplay is fun!
