Well 1st, the liberals always require the worst possible solution to any problem they set out to fix. In this case, from the messiah on down to Debbie Whatsername, they all insist that the only thing that will solve our over spending is taxing the rich more. And of course in their world anyone making more then they do, is rich, hence the $200,000 per year income floor. This plan has failed everywhere it’s been tired, even here, but that’s why the liberals love it. They are sure they are smarter then anyone else, so they will make it work. Besides it will really tick off the tea party, and that’s what they really want. The libs don’t care about the debt, they just spend more of your money.
Democrats have said that that their priorities when it comes to a fiscal cliff deal are to raise more tax revenue and make the tax code more progressive.

Which is why it's odd to see them drawing a line in the sand on raising tax rates.

Raising marginal income tax rates is one of the most economically harmful ways to raise taxes. (The only provisions of the tax code that are more damaging are the corporate income tax and taxes on savings and investments.) Perhaps the only explanation is that Democrats don't actually care about...
