We can get much better public support to decouple the middle-class tax cut from the high end tax cut if we can get one word into circulation: Extra.
Why do the richest 2% need an EXTRA tax cut?
Since the tax rate is marginal the person making $2M get s the same amount back as someone making $250k. It's a smaller percentage of their income, but the same dollar amount. The richest few still getting a tax cut.
Speaker Pelosi is good: "additional" is right. Just needs to be more pointed.
