I am not one of the one percenters, but was probably one of the ten percenters. I continued working full time because I enjoyed my work. However, once I realized that, due to other income, my entire salary was being taxed by the IRS, and saw what they were demanding from me each month, I resigned. Now I hunt, fish, and garden. Without the heavy hand of federal taxation I would still be working, and they would receive more in income taxes from me than they currently do. I suspect many of the most productive who will be targeted by these proposed tax increases will do the same as I did. They are most likely to have the option of simply living off of what they have already earned and going Gault.
Congress returned to "work" this week (now there's a laugh) to complete its lame-duck session before taking another holiday. Spending other people's money is a taxing experience.

Their task is to avoid the "fiscal cliff," a geological construct of their own making. It doesn't take a genius to predict both parties will try to do two things: (1) reach an agreement that will allow each side to take some credit and (2) require those who work for a living to pay government more while they come up with phony, or inconsequential spending "cuts."

Whatever they do, payroll taxes...
