He added that the importance of the issue is underscored by the expiration at the end of the year of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts implemented by President George W. Bush.
“The end of the Bush tax cuts is going to light up this issue as we close in on Jan 1, 2013, so I think there will be other opportunities if we don’t get it in this” payroll tax extension package, he said.
