Do you think that tax cuts for the wealthy should be extended?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Sarah Trauben and Kelly Jones

"Obviously not: it's common sense."

RJ Fowler, Mountain View

"No, because that money is not going to create jobs."

Neal A. Bowie, Sunnyvale

"It's not the politically correct thing to do, but it's the only way to extend unemployment insurance to the people who really need it."

Carol Sollecito, Mountain View

"No, and I don't think we should cut taxes at all. We're bankrupt!"

Michael Pickering, Palo Alto

"Only temporarily, because these people don't need the money. We're losing the middle class."

Jeff Froning, Mountain View
