Both sides claim they are willing to compromise. If this is a critical issue, why not split it down the middle - raise the top margin rate by half the increase O wants. Both sides get some of what they wanted, but not all, and neither side gets a disaster.

The tax increase will likely happen, but the commensurate budget cuts in social spending will be illusory. Real cuts will only come in defense which Barry Soetero secretly wants anyhow and the political consequences, of which, are more palatable then reductions in social spending. Dependent people are more worried about getting free things and less concerned about protecting this Republic.

You obviously don't understand what the O-man means by compromise. He won, you see, so compromise means conservatives must compromise their core principles and do what the O-man says.

Get it now?

One of the bittersweet benefits when taxes are levied on taxpayers making $250,000 jointly will be the “disproportionate” increase in taxes that will come from the citizens of the Blue states as compared to the Red states.
Of course it will be another issue for ‘EQUALITY”
