Euphemism Of The Day

From Bloomberg, by way of The All-Seeing Eye Of Froomkin:

Republican congressional leaders don't want to confront voters in an election year with hard choices such as trimming homeownership tax breaks to help abolish the alternative minimum tax, as a presidential panel has recommended, according to strategists.

I've agonized over this, and I just can't decide whether this qualifies as a euphemism or outright doublespeak. Are there any experts out there who can give me some guidance on this?
