After reading the editorial "The GOP tax hike" (Dec. 22), an obvious question came to mind: How is it that not approving an extension of the Obama payroll tax cut is evil and anyone against extending it must be certifiably insane, yet when Obama wanted to end the so-called "Bush tax cuts" he was doing the right thing?

I think that perhaps there may be a slight bias in your thought processes.
