You keep trying to paint me as a 'Robin Hood' who wants to rob from the rich to pay the poor freeloaders, putting words in my mouth and only replying to my posts with the same moronic Hannity far-right talking points. Mr. Broken record.
Write this down: People, both as workers and as investors, respond logically to the incentives that government sets for them.
I'm leaning in favor of the 2-year across the board extension, but re: Obama's proposal - the middle & lower income earners are the consumers, the lower spends most of their income just to pay bills and feed their family. The upper income can take the hit and sill maintain a healthy investment portfolio.
