I'm glad to see the Right has apparently decided...despite electoral evidence to the contrary...to protect the top 2% at all costs, even it means 2k more in taxes for everyone.

Exactly! How people continue to vote for Republicans just absolutely blows my mind. They don't care about you! I'm from the South and the only people who vote Republican are old white religious nuts. Luckily enough they'll die out soon.

So you are a racist. I mean by everything I seen written by the dems if you are from the south you are stupid, poor, inbred, uneducated and racist. You live on welfare, while living in a trailer guzzling beer just waiting for your next state check. I just saying only what I have read written by the dems.
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...
