    If that is in fact the case I would agree with you. My goal was to not raise taxes on anyone. Unfortunatly the only income for the Federal Government currently is to taxes. If you need more there are very few options. My bet (NOT DESIRE) is that taxes will go up. By the way, that includes me since I am in the top bracket.

    There is absolutely nothing that prevents you from sending more to the Federal Govt. as they take donations. Wonder how many rich liberals who have no problem telling others what they should pay are doing that?

    the libs constantly whine about the rich not paying enough for "what they use" but are totally silent for the obvious class of those who clearly don't pay for what they use. The rich of course pay far far far more than what they use in order to somewhat counterbalance the net tax consumers (which are far more than that 47% because many taxpayers who do pay FIT still use more in benefits than they pay)

    you are deluded then if you think the dems will actually cut spending. that is the only way dems win elections. for them to cut spending to actually reduce the deficit they would lose their ability to buy the votes that give them power. so jacking up taxes on the rich won't overcome to massive increases in spending the dems scheme to do.

    Yep, quite interesting the passion that libs have for raising the taxes on the rich and no passion for getting anything out of th 47% that don't pay anything in income taxes. Amazing that they don't see how stupid that argument is.

    I read the Tax Policy Center article and it still did not give any details.

    Obama Administration claims that letting the tax cuts expire for the rich will impact the budget by 700 billion but what they don't emphasize is that amount is over 10 years or 70 billion a year, a drop in the bucket in the 1.3 trillion 2010 deficit. There is no guarantee that money will even get to the govt. or if it does get that it will reduce the deficit by 70 billion. As you aptly stated, Democrats need the money to buy votes.
