  •  The Tax is on income OVER $250K (2+ / 0-)

    The $250K is a ceiling -- the taxes beneath that level remain the same, and everybody making over that amount STILL gets the lower rate for the first $250K they make.

    Plus, you can't lower the deficit in one year -- please notice that the Republican plan won't eliminate the deficit at all. And it will take 10 to 20 years to bring us back to the surpluses we had under Clinton.

    Now -- if we get serious about the REAL elephant in the room, the budget item that must be cut is Defense. Let's let the rest of the world take care of itself, bring every single troop home, sell all our overseas bases, and spend that money on bases here in the USA.

    If we really want to protect our borders our military should be here, not Germany, not Afghanistan, and not Japan.
