      In fact, under Obama's plan, the over $250k crowd gets a bigger tax cut than anyone else (and that's not counting the cap-gains and estate tax cuts.)

        I would argue that income generated while sleeping should be taxed even higher than income generated while actually working.

        Middle Class working = 25-28% tax
