There's something that always bothered me about tax cuts, and I could never quite put my finger on why. I think I get it now. It's this: tax cuts can be "temporary" and "expire" after a set period unless they're "extended" or "made permanent." As if the taxes have always been there, as if the taxes are natural. And we can tinker with them, but they'll always come back unless we pay real close attention. Kind of like that grass that comes up between chunks of sidewalk. And that's how it's supposed to be.
