Senate Democrats have not yet indicated whether they will cooperate with the House or attempt to find other increased revenue streams through new taxes. They should not. The economy already is suffering and more taxes, no matter whom they are intended to affect, will create further economic stagnation. Politicians need to understand that American society is not rigidly divided into classes with no mobility among social groups. Instead, taxes directed against "the rich" often affect the middle class, which in turn hurts the working class whose employers are suffering from the increased burden. Taxes are not a zero-sum game. Such a misunderstanding is why we are having a problem with the AMT right now and why we do not need increased taxes on "the rich."
