New Republic;2/17/2011, Vol. 242 Issue 2, p2
In this article the author discusses U.S. president Barack Obama and the tax cuts enacted by his predecessor in office George W. Bush. The central focus of the article is the author's contention that Obama wishes to repeal the tax cuts but has kept them in place because of political expediency. A number of topics are addressed including Republican Party measures that they say will improve the American economy, the possibility that Obama will not extend the tax cuts after his possible 2012 re-election, and the reduction in the national debt that would occur if the tax reductions were repealed.
