How to pay for the payroll tax break

Republicans and Democrats are wrangling over extending (or even expanding) a payroll tax cut for Americans, which would keep at least another 2 percent of their incomes in their pockets. The issue: How do we pay for it?

Democrats want to offset the loss of about $180 billion in taxes with a surtax on millionaires. [91 votes] (46%)
 
Republicans want to freeze federal workers' pay for three years, as well as reduce the government workforce by some 200,000 jobs via attrition. [102 votes] (52%)
 
Deem the extensions to be emergency spending, and just add them to the deficit. [5 votes] (3%)
