FILE - In this Aug. 27, 2012 file photo, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, talks to reporters on the floor of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. 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. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)
