Vote on Bush tax cuts likely to come soon

Sen. Dick Durbin says to expect a vote on the Bush tax cuts before the Senate adjourns in October. He also said he is “very confident there are not 60 votes in the Senate to extend the entire Bush tax cut regime.”

It's a little late to be changing the lexicon, but this event should really be called a vote on rescinding the Bush and GOP tax increase. After all, they were the ones that programmed the sunset into the tax legislation, and if nothing happens, the tax rates go up. Thus, the Bush/GOP tax increase.

I just really, really wish we were talking about a temporary extension rather than a permanent reduction in rates. It just doesn't make any sense.
