Question 2 of 21

2. In 2012, the payroll tax cut implemented in 2011 to help stimulate the economy was extended another year, sending middle-income workers home with an average savings of $400 more a year. Where do you fall on the extension of the payroll tax cut?

There should be a flat tax rate, no matter what the taxpayer’s income.

If the economy is truly on the road to recovery, why extend the payroll tax cut? Everyone should have to pay his or her fair share.

Times are still tough. The current payroll tax cut is a good idea, and hopefully people will spend that little bit of extra money to help stimulate the economy.

Middle-income workers are the backbone of the American economy and deserve even bigger tax breaks. Next year let’s make the average savings $500.

Middle and low-income workers should be taxed far less than the wealthy. Let's make the payroll tax cut permanent.
