Payroll Tax Cut Extension Could Bring Economic Benefits
Not extending the cut, say economists, could further threaten a shaky economy.

By Danielle Kurtzleben Nov. 28, 2011 Leave a Comment SHARE
It looks like a political battle that the president just might win. Back from Thanksgiving break, congressional Democrats are looking to extend the year-old cut in the payroll tax, which is paid by both workers and employers. Insiders are saying it's a potential area for bipartisan agreement. Political winner or not, many economists say that the tax cut provides clear economic benefits, especially when compared to the alternative.

The tax cut is set to expire on December 31. Senate Democrats are pushing an extension, that would further trim this tax, once levied at a rate of 6.2 percent but trimmed a year ago to 4.2 percent, to 3.1 percent. The plan would also cut the tax paid by employers on the first $5 million of their payrolls. The tax cut is currently worth an estimated $934 to the average family, according to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.

[See how minorities might boost Obama in 2012, despite the economy.]

Macroeconomic Advisers has estimated that the expiration of the tax cuts could reduce GDP growth by a half a percentage point and cost the economy 400,000 jobs by the fourth quarter of 2012. And dollar for dollar, keeping the temporary payroll tax cut into 2012 would boost the economy more than other tax cuts, like making the Bush tax cuts permanent or cutting the corporate tax rate, as Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics, has shown.

The potential downsides to the extension are minimal compared to the economic stimulus that they provide, according to Chuck Marr, director of federal tax policy at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. "I think the risks are on the other side. There is the risk that it would expire and it would be a negative event. Every paycheck in the country would go down on January 1," he says.

Yet keeping the tax cut is not without cost. The holiday enacted one year ago cut Social Security payroll taxes from 6.2 to 4.2 percent, meaning there is less money being collected to fund the already endangered Social Security system.

Repeatedly extending the holiday could be problematic, acknowledges Marr. "Certainly if it became commonplace you'd have to worry about Social Security," he says, adding that "Social Security is going to need more taxes, not less." But risking further economic problems is too great a price to pay, he believes, compared to the hit that Social Security would take from two years of payroll tax cuts.

Providing an extra $1,000 per year to many American families will also mean taking money from somewhere else—in this case, wealthy Americans. To pay for the extension, Democrats have proposed a 3.25 percent tax surcharge on income topping $1 million. Such proposals have repeatedly met with opposition from Republicans in Congress.

Grover Norquist, the president of anti-tax group Americans for Tax Reform, says that however Congress chooses to offset the tax cut, lawmakers should be careful to ensure that they do not further hurt the economy. "If you are continuing [the tax cut] and raise some other tax, then you'd have to make a judgment call on whether the tax you raise did more damage to the economy than the one you are cutting."

However, the benefits of such a tax cut may far outweigh the effects of a tax on millionaires. The top earners tend to spend much smaller percentages of their disposable income than working- or middle-class people, who often live paycheck-to-paycheck and are more likely to spend extra money in their pockets.

Republicans flock to The Huffington Post

When Tom Coburn wanted to pitch his criticism of the Democrats’ health care plan last month, the senator’s office considered sympathetic media outlets like The Wall Street Journal and the conservative blog RedState.

Instead, the Oklahoma Republican went with The Huffington Post.

Despite its liberal leanings, Republican member and aides have begun heading to The Huffington Post to talk up their views.

Arianna Huffington, who co-founded the eponymous site four years ago this month, said that increased Republican engagement “is a reflection of our traffic, our brand, and the fact that we are increasingly seen ... as an Internet newspaper, not positioned ideologically in terms of how we cover the news.”

That's not exactly how the Republicans see it. While GOP aides say they're treated fairly by Huffington Post reporters, they know that their views are likely to take a beating from the site’s bloggers, commenters and headline writers.

But the opportunity for impact is irresistible.

Just as Democrats learned to love — or at least understand — the Drudge Report, Republicans flock to The Huffington Post largely because of the site’s broad reach. In April, The Huffington Post brought in a record 8.8 million unique visitors, according to Nielsen — a number that includes quite a few mainstream media journalists and cable news producers.

“With The Huffington Post, particularly, we see a lot of value in engaging with people who wouldn’t necessarily be inclined to agree with our point of view,” said Coburn press secretary John Hart, who added that it's one of a handful of sites that can have an instant impact on the national debate.

“HuffPo and [Talking Points Memo] really are the assignment editors for many in the Washington press corps — particularly the cables,” said Brian Rogers, who was a spokesman for Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign.“That’s not just a Republican hack saying it — that’s speaking as a press guy fielding calls and e-mails daily from the MSM that start with,‘Did you see this thing on Huffington Post?’ They were effective and they wasted a lot of our time.”

No sense in giving you any links. You obviously don't look at them.
I have to admit, I didn't open the link, but I have since read it. You seem to be against the pipeline, calling people dimwits, and then post a link that gives good reason to build a pipeline.

Flack's view

Democrat President - Democrat Congress - Democrat fault.

Demorat President Republican House - Democrat fault

Republican President Democrat congress - Democrats fault.

Republican President for nearly 7 years, Republican Congresses for nearly 12 years - Democrat's fault led by a minority member of Congress, Superman Barney Frank.

Chuck Marr was evidently too stupid t know that the use of the payroll tax was just a mechanism for a tax break for working Americans. The money lost to SS from that break was replaced by funds out of the general fund as required when the tax break passed Congress.

A waiver for what dimwit? Incandescent bulbs are still available and legal to buy. Buying them however is dumb. They use more electricity and due to the fact that they produce more heat than light they burn out faster. In the long run despite an initially higher price CFLs are cheaper.

Or LA traffic. People should walk or ride a bicycle. Cars are polluting the air with carcinogenic exhaust fumes.

Close down power plants and certain industries and outlaw woodstoves used to heat homes too. They also produce air pollutants that can cause lung cancer.

Maybe we should all stop breathing while the PC police brainwashes us to ostracize smokers.
