technically, letting the 'temporary tax cuts' expire is not a 'tax increase'

It may effectively be an 'tax increase' for those with short memories.
They were temporary because they didn't have the votes to make it permanent, and it is effectively a "tax increase" with or without quotation marks. I believe these tax rates have been the same for one of the longer periods in history, so of course if they expire it will be an increase.
