Lower taxes on the middle class and extend the Bush era tax cuts at the same time. How to do this? One word. Tariffs. By decreasing taxes on the middle class a dramatic increase in tariffs would be offset with no negative impact on the middle classes purchasing power.

I did not know that 75% of us don't pay taxes. For the rest of us, paying an additional $3-4,000 in federal income tax will be worth it, if Obama keeps spending. Wall Street banks will definitely need another round of 'stimulus' money to just break even.

I'm guessing you meant 5%. If not, put down your kool-aide and listen.

If Obama continues to allow Harry Reid to stop every bill coming into the senate, and he lets the Bush tax cuts expire, the tax rates will go up for EVERYONE -- not just "the rich". Specifically, the existing 10% bracket will go away, and the lowest "new" bracket will be 15%. The existing 25% bracket will be replaced by the "new" 28% bracket; the existing 28% bracket will be replaced by the new 31% bracket; the existing 33% bracket will be replaced by the 36% bracket; and the existing 35% bracket will be replaced by the 39.6% bracket.

I'm happy for you that you have enough money a 5% decrease in your income won't bother you. Many of the rest of us can't afford it.
