Sen. Jim DeMint released the following statement:
Today, U.S. Congressman Mike Pence (R-Indiana) and U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) introduced the Tax Relief Certainty Act, a bill that would permanently extend the current individual income tax rates, which will expire on January 1, 2013, and permanently repeal the death tax.
Uncertainty is the enemy of prosperity, said Congressman Pence. By enacting a two-year extension on current tax rates, Congress merely extended the uncertainty that has stifled our economic growth. To encourage growth and job creation, Congress should act now to make all previous tax rates permanent and passing the Tax Relief Certainty Act will do just that.

LOVE IT! Pass it in the House and force the 23 senators from the dems up for reelection in 2012 GO ON RECORD as either being for or against tax cuts. If they pass in the Senate get Obama on record vetoing it.
Especially after Obummer’s budget, increasing these same taxes.
The current rant by leftist trolls (at TH, for instance) is that Republicans are only concerned about 30% of the budget.
This expands that coverage.
Exactly. Nailed it. And that applies not just to taxes, but to the EPA and other crazy regulators, and to crazy left-wing politicians who may suddenly decide to do almost anything without warning.
But as for making the tax-cut permanent NOW, bravissimo! If Obama and Harry don't like it, let them go on record opposing it NOW, just when they are taking credit for "lowering taxes."
The famous Obama tax-cut of 2010, as the media like to put it. Kind of like Clinton's famous welfare reform--which was forced down his throat by the Republicans.
In addition to being a start, it will force Dem Senators and 0bama to make a public vote on taxes. Good ammo for 2012 elections.
Awesome. Now use the type of tactics that Democrats use to force it upon Obama.
He is dead right. Two conditions for economic growth are clarity and predictability. A government that keeps monkeying with tax rates does damage.
