Don Evans makes this point a lot:

"You told us that business planning was difficult because the President’s tax relief isn’t permanent."

Okay, now, this is the part I don't get. If Bush's tax cuts aren't permanent, why can't businesses just plan for them to expire as stated in the law? I really don't see where the uncertainty Evans complains about is. Unless this is all about them assuming the cuts will be made permanent, in which case they've really created the uncertainty for themselves. Because there's nothing unclear and unpredictable about the law that was passed. Tax cuts will last until some designated time when they will end. Isn't that just as certain as the tax cuts being permanent would be?
