  •  Here we go again... (0+ / 0-)

    Yes, we need to decouple the debate over tax rates for millionaires and multimillionaires away from the debate over tax rates for the "merely" well off.  

    Right now, our tax system is flat to somewhat regressive for upper middle class and above -- and that badly needs to be fixed.

    But that "if you have a family that is trying to get ahead" argument won't cut it...if you can't get ahead on $250k/year, you're doing something wrong when it comes to managing your personal finances.  It's an argument that seems custom designed to destroy any support for your case on the part of the majority who would be happy to hit low six figures.
