At Tuesday night’s economic debate, Mitt Romney dismissed the extension of the payroll tax proposed by President Obama as only a little more than not much.
“Look, I don’t like temporary little Band-Aids,” Romney said when asked about the plan to extend the cut in the payroll tax. “I want to fundamentally restructure America’s foundation economically.”
Romney’s just saying what a lot of Republicans say when it comes to the payroll tax. It is, after all, one of the few tax cuts the GOP doesn’t much like. Democrats see it as something of a Marie Antoinette moment.

The clip is yet another sign that Democrats and the Obama campaign are engaging Romney directly, even as Herman Cain (who most still think is unlikely to win the nomination, despite his poll numbers) surpasses him as frontrunner.
