    Unless income over $100k returns to Clinton tax rates, we're looking at significant budget cuts.

      is it?

      Besides, evening jacking it up to Clinton won't solve everything; we need to raise revenue elsewhere and cut back a lot on defense spending and redundant waste.

      •  look at the comment I responded to (0+ / 0-)

        and ask yourself what you really care about politically.

        If you care about funding for Medicare and Medicaid, and pell grants, and infrastructure, and food stamps, and national parks, and EITC, and FEMA, then the $250k vs $100k matters to fund the government. Otherwise those programs get cut by the next grand bargain.

        If you don't give a shit about funding government programs, then, sure, follow the comment's suggestion and only worry about the $25 million/year people.

        •  You mean 'socially' not politically (0+ / 0-)

          and your argument is emotional-only without much better support in terms of HOW much your way will help, and I don't appreciate your 'only worry about the $25 million/year people' bullshit.
