    tax cuts expire and they go up on everyone. And I don't know many people who are poorer than me.

    But the truth is that Americans don't pay enough in taxes. I think that may be why we also have a high infant mortality rate, a low life expectency, and a low quality of life compared to other industrialized nations - who pay more in taxes.

    For sure the wealthy should pay more or their fair share. But this is a win-win. The US gets more money (which hopefully they will spend wisely) and the Republicans look like the bad guys.

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.
