Republicans are wrong about payroll tax cut extension

House Republicans are wrong to fight an extension. They should be fighting to eliminate the tax completely, but instead they argue that extending the cuts must be paid for. This is ludicrous. It isn't their money to begin with. That's like saying "I will stop robbing banks as soon as I can figure out a way to pay for it."  It just goes to further the point that most Republicans are just as big government as most Democrats. It speaks to a general philosophy that Republicans believe they own peoples money. They do not on our money, it is ours. They do not own our body, nor the fruits of the labor it produces. Until we realize this we will continue to be nothing more than free range serfs.
