  FILE- In this Thursday, June 7, 2001, file photo, President Bush leans over after he dropped a pen as he signed his $1.35 trillion tax cut bill during a ceremony in the White House. With the scheduled expiration on Dec. 31, 2012, of tax cuts enacted during the Bush administration, many people who run small companies donât know how much theyâll be paying in tax in the new year. And that has made many put off plans to hire and expand. The uncertainty is increased by the fact that the outcome of the presidential and congressional elections is far from clear, and so itâs impossible to tell whether Congress might act to stop the cuts from taking place.
