  •  No in my world (0+ / 0-)

    And I'm making no such claim.  I used the number I found.

    Whether it's $1600 or $2900 isn't the issue to me at all.  If Presidnet obama gets his way and cuts only the top, I'm getting hit, hard.

    And if I had my my way, I'd go further and there would be ANOTHER, HIGHER bracket at $1 million.

    •  OK, that's news to me . . . (0+ / 0-)

      If Presidnet obama gets his way and cuts only the top

      are you absolutely sure he's proposing to cut only the top?

      •  He's been calling for that (0+ / 0-)

        since the beginning of this debate, hasn't he?

        •  No, he seems to be accepting (0+ / 0-)

          the fact that it may be necessary to accept tax breaks for the very wealthy in order to preserve the meagre tax breaks that we peons get . . . .

          What I'm saying is that it is not worth it to me to keep a few cents a day (or maybe even a dollar or two) if the that means the ultra-wealthy keep their million dollar tax breaks and the country further slides into third world status.

          but that seems to be something you and I fundamentally disagree about.  Oh well. sorry if I was a tad over-wrought about this all.

          •  We don't disagree about it (0+ / 0-)

            Other than the fact that most economists I've read say that dropping the tax cuts will hurt the recovery, I don't have a dog in that fight.

            Oh, and we do disagree on the result, though - I think the average American family will be PISSED about a tax increase.
