Well, many liberals don't pay taxes. They require others to collectively provide what they want, but are either unable or unwilling to provide for themselves. I do think the fact that the Bush-era tax cuts are now permanent for 98% of taxpayers is an achievement worth praise. Even President Bush, with GOP-controlled House & Senate, was unable to make these cuts permanent. I have no doubt that Democrats will work feverishly to undo the tax rates for middle-income taxpayers, as their never-satiated desire for money rages unabated.
