    One of the biggest sticking points of a deal with the level at which taxes will go up. The level the President is sticking to is $250K while the republicans think that is too low.

    Here's a math question for those who think the $250 limit is going to make the wealthy go broke.

    If for up to a dollar I pay 5% tax and I make $1 for the year at the end of the year I would own $0.05 tax.
    If for anything above $1 I owe 10% tax and I make $2 for the year, how much tax do I owe at the end of the year?

    It is just so hard to bring those guys out of the back seat.

    I don't give a fuck whether or not they go broke. The government takes in more than $2 trillion a year. That is more than enough to run this country. Neither they nor you deserve any more of anyone else's money, you parasitic leach.

    Don't expect a response anytime soon.

    These folks only post what they are instructed...they don't think for themselves.

    You have to wait patiently for a HuffPo, ThinkProgress search to be completed to get a reply.

    What's the point of raising taxes on the wealthy? Has that been explained?
