The taxes that are being proposed and the taxes that will be raised with the expiration of the Bush tax rates all fall on the middle class. Nobody is proposing taxes that would raise revenue from the wealthy, but you have to define wealthy as something beyond upper middle class. Wealthy means Soros, Buffett, et al, and also includes CEO's who pay themselves lavishly mostly in ways that don't pay income taxes and more important, like union bosses, control the slush funds that should belong to stockholders which they use to buy themselves goodies from the political class. The only deal that should be cut is a deal to get rid of the Speaker and then stop giving Obama more money.
