While I salute this idea, what Cal fils to recognize are the small business owners who are trapped. there are the people who have a self-owned business that makes in excess of $250k and they simply file as a normal citizen. Their actual take-home is miniscule, no doubt, but the business makes that amount. They have no cohoice but to be at the whims of whatever is done to them. they cannot take the amount in excess of $249,999.99 and put it in bonds, because they have to make payroll, pay the business bills, etc. What a travesty.
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...
