Tax group: No, the real price tag for Obama’s tax plan is $243 billion

Citizens for Tax Justice points out that the White House's $150 billion price tag on Obama's one-year tax cut extension only appears to include part of the total cost—the income tax cuts.

Adding these in would add $80 billion to the total.
