Politics Complicates the Math in Ending Tax Breaks for Rich

There are 5 comments on the www.nytimes.com story from Nov 20, 2012, titled Politics Complicates the Math in Ending Tax Breaks for Rich. In it, www.nytimes.com reports that:

Whether to raise revenue through increasing tax rates or cutting loopholes has become a central sticking point in the negotiations on a major debt deal

The White House has drawn one line in the sand: it argues that tax rates must go up on income above $250,000 a year, because reducing tax breaks for the affluent cannot on its own raise the $1.6 trillion in additional revenue it seeks. Congressional Republicans have drawn another line: they might accept higher revenue, but only through the reduction of tax breaks.4131
