    Here is the study:

    http://waysandmeans.house.gov/Uploa...ncome_taxpayers_in_2013__2012_07_16_FINAL.pdf

    The report has a few problems:

    It was paid for by groups such as the Chamber of Commerce that had already taken a public position on the advisability of ending the tax cuts.

    The analysis assumes that the increase in taxation will be accompanied by increases in government spending, with no justification that I can see (though I didn't read the whole report).
