The article reports on the inclination of U.S. President Barack Obama and his advisers to extend former President George W. Bush's tax cuts before its expiry on December 31, 2010. Factors suggesting a temporary extension of tax cuts include the feeble economic growth, unemployment still at ten percent and the Democrats' huge losses in Congress. The position of House Republicans to make all Bush tax cuts permanent is noted as well as the Democrats' discussions on the tax cut vote strategy given their numbers in both House and Senate.
