To reply about why letting the bush tax cuts roll over would be a good idea:

Going to this site Bush Tax Cuts Calculator
it concludes some weird things that I'm not sure how accurate this is.
If I were head of household and unmarried with one child and my fiance we make more on Obama's plan and less on either Dems or Rep plan. If married we make more on Dems and Rep plans (to a point they are the same) and the least on Obama's plan, and the most back on letting all tax cuts roll back. Of course, that is saying we would be getting more back just because we are getting taxed more or less through the year. The calculator however when you put in say, 300,000, married, 1 child for income shows a different picture, and Republicans plan, Democrats, and rolling back Bush tax cuts show the same tax burden, Obama's however there is a slight difference, of $400 more.
