The Americans Want to Work act and Middle Class tax cuts are two hot topics as we enter the political season. There are numerous primaries tonight, and many voters will have these two items on their minds. The Bush Era Tax Cuts are set to expire at the end of this year, and Congress needs to act if they plan on extending them.
The GOP wants an extension of Tax Cuts, but the democratic party doesn't want to keep taxes low for the ultra wealthy. Although he supports full reinstatement of all tax cuts, House Minority leader John Boehner has expressed that if the only way to keep taxes low for some Americans is to extend the cuts to the wealthy, he will do that - but the best case scenario is to extend all cuts.
On the other hand, the Americans Want to Work Act is sitting in Congress's queue, and it almost looks as if it should be named the "Congress Doesn't Want to Work Act" based on the non-action taken on the move for another unemployment extension.
The fact remains is this: we need tax cuts, and we need the Americans Want to Work Act to be passed. It's that simple. Keeping taxes lower for everyone and extending unemployment will do a lot to make the economy a lot better.
