I saw Andrew Liverwurst on CNBC a short while ago. He stated that DOW was building some type of chemical plant near Houston, Texas because it was cheaper than building in a 3rd World Country. Does this mean that the Texas pay scale is a 4th world country?
You should consider yourself lucky that you able to pay this tax. This tax rate is only a return to the pre George Bush tax cuts. What will you do with the extra money -- hoard it? There are people in this country that go hungry every day.
