Obama may delay tax-cut rollback for wealthy Sun Nov 23, 2008 11:54am EST By Randall Mikkelsen WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Barack Obama may consider delaying a campaign promise - to roll back tax cuts on high-income Americans - as part of his economic recovery strategy, two aides said on Sunday. David Axelrod, the Obama campaign strategist who was chosen to be a senior White House adviser, was asked if the tax cuts could be allowed to expire on schedule after tax year 2010 rather than being rolled back by legislation earlier. "Those considerations will be made," he said on "Fox News Sunday." Bill Daley, an adviser to Obama and commerce secretary under former President Bill Clinton, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the 2010 scenario "looks more likely than not." President George W. Bush's tax cuts are set to expire at the end of 2010. After that they would revert to 2001 levels, when the top individual tax rate was 39.6 percent. - www.reuters.com/article/vcCandidateFeed2/idUSTRE4AM1F120081123 Letting these tax cuts for the well off simply expire as scheduled is okay with me instead of getting rid of them early. If it wasn't for having to deal with the Bush-caused economic meltdown I would not approve of not getting rid of them early but we have to deal with the conservatives' botching of economic matters in this country.
