As determined by the CBO and our experience in the 90's show us, this will have little effect on the economy. Letting the tax cuts for the middle class expire on the other hand, is expected to throw us into another recession.

    This is not a hard concept for most people.
    Obunny's plan is only a scheme to tax the rich more so he can spend more on buying the votes of the dependent. He has no interest in cutting the deficit or government.

    And to claim that the rest of the country cannot pay more is a joke-its all about losing votes

    And I don't whine about taxes or the media. You'd be hard pressed to match me.

    I may need help translating your post, but it seems you are saying that the President is fulfilling his promise to protect SS recipients by letting the tax cuts for the wealthy expire because there is no benefit to letting them continue. With that I would agree.

    here I will put it in rational language rather than Obamagasmic BS

    Obama understands that the number of voters who envy the rich outnumber the rich who have no use for Obama's schemes to spend this country into bankruptcy

    You're mistaken, again. I have no such worry.

    I suspect you will claim you don't worry about people carrying concealed handguns either

    This is what you don't get. Its not about envy, its about an economy that cannot proper when too much wealth is concentrated at the top. James Carville's observation held true in the presidential election, "Its the economy, stupid."
