  •  one quibble: (8+ / 0-)
    ensure Tax Cuts to the Middle Class BUT NOT THE TOP 2%.
     Everyone, even the top 2% get a tax cut on income up to $250,000.  President Obama did try to make that clear, but it may slip notice.  It's an important selling point.

      remember to repeat it.

      But it might be because I know the issue, inside and out, regarding income tax rates and the levels of income they apply to.

      So I expect everyone to understand it, too, even though I know that far too many taxpayers have no clue, nor do they care to know, so long as it doesn't apply to them. Which they then depend upon the TradMed to tell them when they should care, because now it is happening to them.

      It's the mainstream media #suckitude in general, not doing it's job properly, and making it my business to remind people.

      But you are correct.

      No more tax cuts to the top 2% on income over $250,000.
