12. Middle class tax cuts and unemployment benefits are an extension of current benefits.
Edited on Fri Dec-17-10 09:03 AM by Dawgs
Neither have been stimulative.

The payroll tax cut is something the Republicans wanted and it will only hurt SS. I'd rather keep Social Security than lose it for some minor short-term gain.
