    Did we miss the part of your post where
    1- you identify those specific individuals,
    2- identify how they became rich because of the government control by the Democratic Party?

    I think those who support tax cuts should read this linked article from a non-bias, non-political source then come back here to defend their position.

    No one should be paying higher taxes at this time.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    LOL...eHow.com? Really? I wrote an article on how to build a bird feeder and I've never done it before. People post as much crap on there as they can, hoping it will be clicked on and they'll get paid. You can't trust anything on there.

    53% is not a vast majority and there is still a margin of error. Regardless, extending the tax cuts for all is the right thing to do.

    Frankly, I don't know how information posted there is verified one way or another or how people who post information there get paid. None of that matters to me. What does matter is the accuracy of the information. Nonetheless, since you distrust the informaiton at eHow.com, maybe you can refute the information posted at The Washington Post which also discredits the effectiveness of the Bush tax cuts.

    Re: CBS News Poll: Most Oppose GOP Tax Plan

    And if you still discredit the information and statistics mentioned in the Washington Post article, what about the info mentioned in this article from the Christian Science Monitor?

    When Congress passed the tax relief act in 2001, the US Treasury had a surplus, which economists predicted would grow to $5.6 trillion 10 years down the road. Instead, the United States has an estimated deficit this year of $1.34 trillion. If the federal government extends all those tax cuts this fall and takes no other actions, America could be looking at $9 trillion or $10 trillion in accumulated red ink over the next decade.Still, it appears that the political will exists to extend many of the tax cuts. On Sept. 8, in a speech in the Cleveland area, President Obama threw down the gauntlet to the GOP, saying that Democrats were "ready, this week ... to give tax cuts to every American making $250,000 or less.

    On Sunday on the CBS show "Face the Nation," House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio said he was still in favor of not raising taxes for all Americans. But, when pressed on whether he would hold middle-class tax cuts hostage to cuts for the wealthy, he said, “If the only option I have is to vote for those at 250 (thousand dollars) and below, of course, I’m going to do that.”


    ....


    Everyone from the poorest taxpayer to the richest saw disposable income rise as a result of the cuts. For example, a middle-class family making $52,224 a year (the middle 20 percent of all filers) had a one-year increase in their take-home pay of 2.4 percent, or $1,016 – almost enough for five nights of camping at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

    But the top 1 percent did far better: They saw an increase in their disposable income of 5.9 percent, or $72,872 – enough to buy a basic XJ Jaguar.
