    a tax holiday, because the more we frame it as a tax cut, or that letting it expire is raising taxes on the middle class, the harder it will be to keep this from becoming permanent.  It is a temporary fix, a method of stimulus that used the mechanism of social security to put money in the pockets of the middle and lower classes.
