If you polled all American economists and gave the median thinker plenipotentiary powers, he or she would likely say its best to leave tax rates where they are for the next year or two and then raise them, Aaron said.
If deficit reduction is the goal, the cuts should NOT be extended, especially to those earners in the top 1%- of course, the tax system needs reform as well, so that those making a billion are not allowed to report taxable incomes of $100, 000-that is a huge part of the problem- Hard to fix when those making the rules also hold the heaviest purses.

The cuts have been in effect for years and look at HOW WELL they've helped; the # of jobs produced. IMO, IF deficit reduction is the goal, the cuts to the top wage earners need to expire. Tweaking is fiscally irresponsible.
