    In addition to the increase in the top marginal tax rate, the fiscal cliff deal reinstates some pre-Bush tax cut measures that reduce deductions for those with incomes above $250K. However, all this means is that someone like poor wittle Ari will only get to deduct some of his charitable contributions at, for example, 28 cents on the dollar instead of 39.6.

    Your point still stands, though all we can infer from Ari’s tweet is that he has taxable income of at least $250,000. Of course, this also assumes he knows wtf he’s talking about. Plenty of wingers have demonstrated they don’t understand the concept of marginal tax rates, much less phased reductions in tax exemptions.

    Meanwhile...you stay classy Ari!
