ABSTRACT
The article discusses the conflict between the U.S. Republican-led House of Representatives and Senate Democrats over tax cuts. A bill was passed by the House which extends all George W. Bush-era tax cuts set to lapse at the end of 2012. Senate Democrats approved their own bill increasing tax rates on the wealthy. It was mentioned that voters need to remember that Democrats moderated the House in 2008 when they approved a full extension of the Bush-era tax cuts.
