This is true that 98% of people make less than $250k and if they make more than $250k , the first $250k is not affected at all. People were paying much higher taxes during Clinton and making more money.
Rich should love their country more than they love their money. A poor country make them poor eventually.
When middle class do better then the rich people will do better.
When middle class do better then the stock market will do better.
Unless they extend the payroll tax cut, EVERYONE who gets a paycheck will have a lower check.
Today, ANYONE who is employed and has a FSA will have the max reduced from $6k to $2500.
EVERYONE who is employed and had medical insurance, already (in the majority of cases) contributes, and has a % deducted. That amount has gone up and will go up even more.
We didn't even get to the new TBD tax increases.
98% not affected? Nope. Almost all are and will be affected. Just varying degrees.
Oh, and for the women's right activists out there, pretty soon birth control pills will be over the counter, thus no longer covered by insurance. So they'll be payin $12 per month out of their pockets.......So be careful what you wish for.
