  •  most americans think Obama raised their taxes (7+ / 0-)

    so he might as well make what they think reality, seems it's an issue that's out of his control anyway (he does have control, just let the rich tax cuts expire and do a new bill for middle class americans only, if repubs vote against it so be it).

    •  They only think that (0+ / 0-)

      because they didn't see anything from the tax cut last year. Remember that big tax cut? The one that got me maybe $30/mo?

      What people notice is when they get a bigger refund or have to pay less. Not a small blip in their take home pay. If the withholding tables had been left the same, people would have gotten a bigger refund, and then NOBODY would be thinking their taxes weren't cut.

      This is the same way. If it's a few dollars difference, nobody is going to even give a damn. Really, they won't. They'll barely notice.
