Romney Reverses Position, Backs Payroll Tax Cut Extension

Romney Reverses Position, Backs Payroll Tax Cut Extension

Benjy Sarlin

Mitt Romney derided President Obamas call for a payroll tax cut extension as a band aid in October. But he came out in favor of the move on Monday as the White House makes a new push to prevent taxes from going up on millions of Americans.

Look, I dont like temporary little Band-Aids, Romney said earlier. I want to fundamentally restructure Americas foundation economically.

On Monday, however, he endorsed the idea.

I would like to see the payroll tax cut extended because I know that working families are really feeling the pinch right now middle-class Americans are having a hard time, he told radio host Michael Medved.

1. I bet the Republicans won't like that position.
Well, they'll only have to wait 15 minutes or so until it changes again.
