Extend them.

If we don’t the let considers the un collectible new higher taxes as in the bank and will act to increase the size and scope of the fed.

Lets just put everybodies' theories to the test at once!

Raise the taxes on everybody who now pays taxes by 100%... Then let's see how the economy performs...

That ought to settle eveybody's arguments.

Cutting taxes is easy. Cutting spending is the problem. That’s why Romney has tax reform as one of his centerpieces for economic ‘reform’. It has been decades since we have cut Gov’t. But it is easy for a politician to campaign on cutting taxes.

The economists have already said they should be extended.

To prove he's not a b******, betcha Obama will now "suggest" a one year extension of all the cuts as a compromise.

Man has a heart...a black heart.

Until the election, push, every week, a new bill to the Senate to make them permanent.

Make a big deal about it. Send in a film crew to record Dingy Harry and his obstructionism.

That must be the vaunted 59 point plan! Can anyone tell me what parts of the 59 point plan they have heard of on the news. Romney should throw out the 59 points, go get Herman Cain and have him go out and say Romney agrees with 9:9:9, it’s catchy and makes sense and easy to explain to the most ignorant among us! It’s the kind of reform that would create an explosion of economic activity.

Obama has promised to veto any extension bill that reaches his desk.
