ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Bush tax cuts are set to expire in January. Lawmakers, small business owners, and neighbors say it's a bad idea because taxes will increase for everyone.

Senator Saxby Chambliss spoke with WALB about the last three budgets democrats passed. Their goals are to phase out the 2001 tax package.

Chambliss says it's a bad idea during a time when the economy is struggling and businesses are reluctant to invest, expand, or hire right now.

Chambliss says a long-term extension of the cuts will help the weak economy and keep small business owners afloat.
