What the media fails to say is that the tax rate is returning to the normal rate it had been at for 70 YEARS.

NObama in his "infinite wisdom" along with the idiot Democrats did was reduce the normal rate for the last 2 years by 2%, requiring additional borrowing from China and increasing the national debt.

Now the rate is returning to normal. Did anyone benefit from their stupid idea? No, and now that the tax rate is returning to normal they are crying.

Boo Freaking Hoo! At least the moron won’t have to borrow another $160 BILLION to cover that stupid idea!

You didn't care to put the other part of the equation in place. Rethugs joined in to make it become the law. Nothing passes Congress without the rethugs giving the thumbs up.

He does, but it was part of the last minute deal to avoid the "fiscal cliff" the morons in Congress created.

Since the debt ceiling was NOT raised, no banana for no-show nothead.
