    I say tax the rich at 80%-85%. They overwhelmingly voted for Pres Obama, so screw 'em. Let them reap what they sow. I hope our gov't taxes them into oblivion. Sorry Turtle Dude.

    From what I gather, if it's not fixed it will cost my family about $6,000 between tax rate increase, reduction in child tax credit, increase in SS tax, and there was one other thing that I am forgetting. Either way, I'm not happy about essentially losing $6,000.

    I look at it slightly differently, in that what makes me unhappy is the spending that necessitated "losing" $6,000.

    I won't enjoy it either, but at least if it is allowed to happen it will confirm my long-held opinion that the burden of profligate spending always falls to the average taxpayers eventually.
