You missed one of the biggest ones. Whenever Dems & other statist establishment pols get de facto tax rate hikes, they immediately start thinking of the projected add'l revenue (invariably greater than the actual increase in revenue realized) as a BIG OL' WINDFALL, & THEY NOW WANNA $PEND IT! Look back, e.g. at the rope-a-dope they played on GHW Bush in 1989-90. The ensuing economic slowdown (partly fallout from the 1986 'tax reform') was of course blamed on the Prez, giving us Willie-Boy in '92. "Deficits" cannot be reduced without control of $pending. Demmies don't care about deficits & debt except as excuses to hike taxe$. The minute they smell more revenue, they wanna $pend it. Harry Reid reportedly wants to do another "stimulus" now!
Can the GOP really be this stupid? It appears many in the GOP Congress are suddenly willing to raise taxes. What utter fools. As Forest Gump's mother (played by Sally Field) said, "Stupid is, as stupid does." And this is world-class stupid.

If GOP politicians can't figure out any good arguments to oppose tax increases, I’ll give them a few.

First of all, Obama and the Democrats argue that the wealthy don't pay their "fair share." Really? The top 1% pay 40% of all the taxes. That's not "fair?" They also account, according to the New York...
