Just wanted to thank you and the leadership of the House for failing to pass the bill that had already been passed by the Senate to keep the tax cuts in place for 98% of Americans. Now I get to see my taxes go up by a couple of thousand dollars, and while I can't really afford that, at least those that can will start paying their fair share.
Just to remind you, Congress put the process in place to make the taxes go up if a bipartisan budget agreement didn't come about, so Congress, not the President, gets to own that. And you do realize that the President campaigned for two years on a platform that called for keeping the tax cuts for 98% of Americans, and that 51% of the country specifically voted for that plan, which you and the other Republicans ignored. So congratulations, your party owns the fiscal cliff, and the reinstatement of higher taxes on 100% of Americans.
As a dentist, I don't know where your income falls, but at least you will pay the same price as the rest of us for your failure to keep the tax cuts in place.
Have a Happy New Year, aka Happy Sequestration Day
