Let tax cuts expire for everyone
I am only using him as an example, but everyone, especially the rich, have so many ridiculous and legal deductions, that a 2 percent rise in income taxes will have no effect at all in my opinion. So, even if tax rates raise for everyone or for only the most wealthy, 99.9 percent of taxpayers will take advantage of legal deductions in the present tax code and pay nowhere near the maximum tax rate, so why is everyone getting so bent out of shape over tax raises? Let the tax cuts expire and this coming year, how about rewriting the tax code for everyone? Both sides of Congress sound like broken records every day. Both sides need to and can sacrifice and compromise. Can't they just get along?
