    last time I checked- the president ran on and won on the tax hikes for 250,000 and above so why in the hell are we capitulating to them now?
    I must have fallen asleep and woken up in a world where the Constitution was amended to say that campaign promises were exempt from the legislative process.

    Why didn't anyone tell me?

      the Democrats could force $250K, then I'd agree.  However, the President came out with $400K almost immediately when the negotiations started and changes to Social Security to boot.  You can't negotiate if the other side doesn't believe you have boundaries they can't cross.  We can't feel good about his negotiating for the same reason.
