Sounds like someone is trying to drag it on for so long that it will be swept under the rug and forgotten about. Or perhaps they are waiting for all the parties involved to die off.

My bad - Bush's tax cuts were to expire in 2010 - Obama got the cuts exteded through 2012 as as to not totally trash the economy. Remember, you would be paying bout $2,000.00 extra if the tax cuts had expired as Bush planned. . It is anyone's guess as to what will happen after 12-31-12.

You must be a friend of Roberta's! Go back and read your history. You do realize that the BUSH tax cuts were supposed to expire in 2010, but a reprive was given until the end of 2012? Just think what your taxes would be now if the BUSH tax cut had been let to expire as originally planned. And of course the president sets gas prices - Not. That is done by OPEC - read up on what they do. Jobs have been outsourced for years. You do know what happened to the housing industrry in approximately 2007? That caused a trickle down effect that now affects just about everybody. MF got hit with the flood tax because FEMA got tired of paying huge amouts of money for people who kept getting flooded out in the midwest, but continued to rebuild and get flooded out again - guess who had to pay. Also, think Katrina. FEMA had to come up with money from someone. This does not mean I'm voting for Obama, but give the guy a break - he came into a horrible situation.

Roberta, Roberta, Roberta - you need to go back and read your history for the past 5-6 years. Obama did keep BUSH's tax cuts that he initiated and that were supposed to expire this year. And if you'll read up on the recession, you'll know that it started in 2007, or 2006, depending upon which econimist you believe. that all started when the housing bubble burst. Read back on how the recession of 1929 started -I'm sure you remember it well. This does not mean Iam going to vote for Obama - it just means that I think with my head, not my emotions as you obvsiously do.
