    Should taxes for the middle class be raised on 1 January 2013

    That is exactly what will happen if the Bush Tax cuts are cancelled..........you bracket will go from 10 to 15 percent and to 28 to 31 percent. That is what the Democrats and Hussein Obama want to pay for their social programs...........

    Romney is the one who will raise taxes on the middle class, he calls it "broadening the base". The mortgage deduction is in his sights.
    It is the only deduction that most of the middle class can get and killing it will raise the trillions needed to cover further tax cuts for the top 1%.

    Obama will end the Bush tax cuts for the top 1% and make them permanent for the rest of us. You choose.

    You didn't post a link navy.

    And as far as raising taxes go, I think taxes need to be raised on everyone, proportional to the amount they're able to afford. This will mean larger percent raises on the wealthiest and lower percent on the poorest, but I think everyone needs to be paying more until we start getting our debt paid off.

    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    No, raising taxes on middle income earners would be highly counterproductive. With consumption growing at an anemic pace (especially among the low to mid wage brackets), removing excess income that could be used to invest, pay off excess debt or spend on discretionary items would only help prolong the trend.

    What is your point in referring to him by his middle name? Yes, it is his middle name... so what? It's not like he chose it. It's not like he uses it in daily life. It's not like he was born after people like Saddam came to power, and his parents chose it for that reason. Hence, it doesn't mean anything... AT ALL.

    It's simply juvenile crap, and it clearly demonstrates a complete and utter lack of objectivity in your thinking. If I can't trust you to think logically on something as meaningless as their given name, then I certainly cannot trust you to put rational thought into anything that needs rational thought. Your failure is already demonstrated and proven.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
