President Obama said the tax cut deal he made with Republicans will bring job growth and lessen the strain on the American people.
But not everyone thinks it is a good plan.
The President is urging lawmakers to examine the deal and "get this done."
It would extend expiring Bush-era tax rates to all taxpayers for two years and include a 13 month extension of unemployment benefits.
But one of those against the plan is former Indiana Second District Congressman Chris Chocola.
Chocola is now the president of the Washington based group "Club for Growth" which is dedicated to smaller government and lower taxes.
“When I was at CTB working, we didn't make decisions based on one or two-year policy, you know, we made it on things that we could count on that were permanent. And so there's always this discussion of temporary tax cuts and there's never a discussion of temporary spending. We should really reverse the discussion,” said Chocola.
Chocola was Indiana's Second District Congressman for four years.
He lost his bid for a third term to Congressman Joe Donnelly in 2006.
