Response to Jack on Payroll Tax Cut
Jack has been asking us conservatives on this blog why, because Republicans believe in tax cutting, don’t they support the extension of the cut in payroll taxes. I finally found an answer. In the current National Review there is the following explanation: “Democrats now want to extend that tax cut. Republicans are uninterested. They say that temporary tax cuts do not improve long-term incentives to work, save, and invest, and that cutting the payroll tax will either endanger the financing of Social Security and Medicare or force those programs to rely on general revenue rather than the dedicated payroll tax.” P. 10.
