I hope that this passes the house. I don't think we should raise taxes on anyone right now. However, by passing a bill that extends the current rates for everyone making less than a million, Boehner can blunt the Democrats attack that republicans are just trying to protect the very wealthy at the expense of the middle class. This plan B specifically extends the rates for the middle class and for probably the majority of small business owners. If we pass this, the Democrats will be the ones voting against extending the rates for those making less than a million. It is then the Democrats willing to sacrifice the middle class in order to tax the very wealthy.
