No, now is now and the republican plan for actually paying for something without dumping money into a payroll tax, which, of course will be raided for something else later, makes sense.
Do you even know what part of Obamacare will get cut with the republican plan? The Prevention and Public Health Fund. The same Prevention and Public Health Fund the democrats wanted to raid for the payroll tax cut extension that passed this year.
Hey I'm for extending lower student loan rates. I just think we could easily find something to cut rather than raising a tax on someone that will eventually get raided by either/both parties.
