Why not hold firm on low tax rates for rich? The “fiscal cliff” puts a damper on government spending, which hurts Dems more than Repubs. Obama will crack.
I think we should vote to maintain the same tax rates for the rich but I also think that politicians of all stripes cut out exeptions for their pals that nobody else gets. It is a corrupt practice. For instance I ran a S corp business for near 30 years and from the ground up I paid for everybodys health insurance. My health insurance premiums were taxed as regular income while Gates and Buffets were tax deductible because they ran C corps. That kind of crap is assinine.
