Back at ya -- Why do you hate those making over $250K? Raising taxes on them won't close the budget hole and will likely result in less money than expected coming in tot he Treasury and an overall loss in jobs. Look at California's death-spiral of increasing taxes, yet increasing budget gaps. The problem is not income, but spending. You could tax the so-called "rich" 100% of their income and liberals would bemoan that what they could do if they only had 101%.
