Democrats and the lure of Bush Tax cuts

More Democrats are getting on the band wagon to extend the Bush Tax Cuts due to expire the end of this year.  The consensus so far was to extend the tax breaks for the taxpayers making under $250,000.  But now Sen Ben “Cornhusker” Nelson D., N., Sen Kent Conrad, D., N. D. and Sen. Evan Bayh D., Ind. feel extending all the tax cuts would be the right thing to do in view of the dismal job market

After all, what is a one year extension of the tax cuts at $115 billion compared to the  7.5 billion the Obama administration pledged to Pakistan?  Seems like a bargain in the making.
