first of all carol, those tax cuts were rammed through by reconciliation by bush with no way to pay for them.<quoted text>
I always think for myself. I always make sense. And I am not self-loathing.
You're just cuckoo if you don't think Obama isn't going to tax the you-know-what out of those making more than 250,000 and raising the dividend taxes won't affect the economy and, thus, all of us.
second, they were, at least on paper, designed to expire so restoring them to pre bush levels is not exactly a tax increase, it's a correction that was built into the deal...just like the payroll tax decrease was supposed to be temporary.
third, carol...we're talking about 3%...3% carol. you are defending to YOUR hilt, those anti patriots who won't give an inch to help the country back on it's feet after 8 years of disastrous policy. They couldn't possibly care less about you and your family, why then do you care sooooooooo much about them and there precious 3%?
P.S. my prediction is that the taxes will only go up on those making $500,000 or more....boo f*cking hoo
