  •  PLEDGE VIOLATION (0+ / 0-)

    Occurred in 2001 when they wrote legislation that included a tax cut, but also included a tax increase at a later date.

    See dictionary definition of "temporary"

    The date changed, but the hike was always scheduled.

    Put another way, if you never want to see a hike, then you should never enact a temporary cut.

    (Oh, and if you only have enough votes in Congress for a temporary cut, then STFU)
