@WestWingReport: Pres. says with gas prices rising (AAA says avg. gallon of regular $3.51) the payroll tax cut is even more importantUh, excuse me Mr. President, but did you ever hear of the Keystone XL pipeline that would have brought more crude oil into America from our neighbor to the north? Your payroll tax cut is worth about $40 a paycheck - not enough to pay for a full tank of gas. The pipeline would have lowered prices significantly and would have meant far more to the economy than this silly payroll tax cut.
By the way, gas prices in So Cal are now barely below $4 a gallon. The economy is about to take another big hit for no good reason at all.
