    Obama proposes tax increase -cuts?

    Yes- No - Tax increases - decreases? Why
    Cut spending - why & where
    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/18/us...=top-news&_r=0
    WASHINGTON — President Obama will use his State of the Union address to call on Congress to raise taxes and fees on the wealthiest taxpayers and the largest financial firms to finance an array of tax cuts for the middle class, pressing to reshape the tax code to help working families, administration officials said on Saturday.

    The centerpiece of the plan, described by administration officials on the condition of anonymity ahead of the president’s speech, would eliminate what Mr. Obama’s advisers call the “trust-fund loophole,” a provision governing inherited assets that shields hundreds of billions of dollars from taxation each year. The plan would also increase the top capital-gains tax rate, to 28 percent from 23.8 percent, for couples with incomes above $500,000 annually.

    The best part of he Obama plan (for demorats) is that it will never happen; the worst part of the Obama plan (for republicants) is that it sounds good to many voters.

    Many do not like public polls- voting.
    Many will not respond honestly when a poll public or skip voting.
    Reason why I make mine for the most part private.
