    don't share it. This assault has made Americans like SS more, not less and the Ds seem to have really figured it out. I was opposed to both payroll tax holidays but understood why the Pres. pushed it.

    In the lame duck session/or the new Congress we will see a real witches brew of expiring laws: Bush tax cuts for middle class and wealthy, payroll tax holiday, doc fix, Unemployment insurance extension plus a revisit of the Buffett rule.

    I'm hoping if we win the election the President plays hard ball and if necessary allows them all to expire and then deals with the new Congress. Part of that new deal could be a lifting of the cap. But we will see an increase in revenue and it has to happen then, in the glow of the election.

    Further, affiant sayeth not.
