William McBride, Tax Foundation Chief Economist and Seth Hanlon, Center for American Progress Fiscal Reform Director

Topic: Guests will not only discuss if the current Payroll Tax Cut should be extended, but the overall impact of the cut upon the current economy.  Guests will also discuss what Congress can do in terms of economic policy to replace the cut if it does not see an extension.
