I support H.R. 516: To extend the payroll tax reduction. because we are still in recession, and people are struggling to get by as prices for food, fuel, and everything else is steadily continuing to rise (dramatically in the case of fuel). It will take more than this one measure to provide a long term solution, but ANY relief is helpful to me and the countless others having a hard time getting by.

I oppose H.R. 516: To extend the payroll tax reduction. because...this is reducing funding to the future needs. Until an overhaul of the tax code and reassessment of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are modified, this makes no sense. It's robbing Peter tomorrow to pay Paul today.

I oppose H.R. 516: To extend the payroll tax reduction. Social Security is already on questionable financial grounds. Reducing the payroll tax made no sense when it was first done, and makes no sense now. My opinion would differ if Social Security can remain viable at the lower tax levels. Were that the case, we'd need to have a conversation about why we have been over-taxed for decades.
