Awesome: Democrat Short Term Payroll Extenstion Unworkable

Obviously, the Democrats in the Senate are playing their typical games in kicking the issue of the payroll tax cut extension down the road. And, via Jake Tapper, we learn

(ABC News) Officials from the policy-neutral National Payroll Reporting Consortium, Inc. have expressed concern to members of Congress that the two-month payroll tax holiday passed by the Senate and supported by President Obama cannot be implemented properly.

Pete Isberg, president of the NPRC today wrote to the key leaders of the relevant committees of the House and Senate, telling them that “insufficient lead time” to implement the complicated change mandated by the legislation means the two-month payroll tax holiday “could create substantial problems, confusion and costs affecting a significant percentage of U.S. employers and employees.”

ABC News obtained a copy of the letter, which can be read HERE. Isberg agreed that it would be fair to characterize his letter as saying that the two-month payroll tax holiday cannot be implemented properly.

What do Democrats care if businesses are harmed? They have a political agenda. It’s not like most of the businesses are unionized.

The GOP controlled House is most likely going to reject the Senate’s 2 month extension today, and shoot for a full year extension, which would also include the provisions that the Senate stripped out of what was going to be a compromise.
