FILE - In this Feb. 1, 2012 file photo, House Ways and Means Committee member, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, left, makes a comment during a meeting of the Payroll Tax conferees, on Capitol Hill in Washington. A temporary reduction in Social Security payroll taxes is due to expire at the end of the year and hardly anyone in Washington is pushing to extend it. Neither Obama nor Romney has proposed an extension, and it probably wouldn’t get through Congress anyway, with lawmakers in both parties down on the idea. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. David Camp, R-Mich. listens at right. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
