So, taxes went up in the expectation that all things remain the same, investments, jobs, etc. It won't. If I was making $400K to $450K per year and up, I think I could find a CPA to help shield that income for less than what it would cost in increased taxes. Revenues will go down, SocialistProgressiveLiberalDemocratFascists will see that there is not enough revenue to continue spending like they already doing. They will ask for more taxes. Bet on it. It is all the SPLDF have to offer.

Exactly. This will not be the end of Obama's demand for tax increases.

How bad do some House Republicans think the Senate bill is? Ohio Rep. Steven LaTourette thinks the only way that number of Senate Republicans could have voted for the plan was if they were drunk:

"I think our sense, at least in the House, was that a number of the Republicans that voted for it must have been drunk, because it really was a number that wasn't reflective of where we thought some of these people were going to be on a bill like this," he said after emerging from a House GOP caucus meeting.
