      and I don't see how any talk about slightly higher taxes on the middle class has to be considered right wing. I mean, we can argue about how we do it, and make the whole schedule more progressive, but it doesn't seem like it should be an off-limits discussion.

      For the record, I do not believe that lower income earners should be required to pay more in taxes than they're paying now.
