Congressman: We'll reinstate the Bush tax cuts, dare Obama to veto

At a town hall meeting in Phenix City, AL, on Monday, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL/3) said that, despite discussions to keep at least some of the Bush tax cuts, there is the possibility that the current Democrat-controlled Congress will allow the cuts to expire. If that happens, and if the GOP wins control of the House in November, the new Republican Congress would reinstate the tax cuts, and "dare the president to veto it".

My guess is that if November 2nd turns out the way the prognosticators are saying it will, and the House flips over with a heavy number, and the Senate either flips or comes close, I'd be surprised if they just didn't let them all expire. Now, if they do that, I can assure you, January of next year, we're going to pass legislation to put them all back in place and date the president to veto it.
This is why I voted for Rogers in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, and will again this November.
