lol! You're comparing what the article is discussing three years ago to NOW?<quoted text>
I should have included the next part in the WSJ article from three years ago.
"Fast forward to this year (and 2010) when the Wall Street meltdown and recession are going to mean far few taxpayers earning more than $500,000. Profits are plunging, businesses are cutting or eliminating dividends, hedge funds are rolling up, and, most of all, capital nationwide is on strike. Raising taxes now will thus yield far less revenue than it would have in 2006."
You still come up with taxing the 2% is an illusion.
It's interesting that you took an article that was less than two weeks after he took office to make your case.
You clearly have forgotten the previous 6 months and most certainly, the previous 8 years of bushie's "economic boom" that cons like to spout!
