4. We should go over no matter what. Everything would go back to the way it was.
Not just the top rate, which doesn't really hit the 1% that hard. A guy like Romney won't feel that top rate at all because he doesn't pay income tax. Capital gains will go back to 20% which he and the other money for nothing scum do pay and the corporate minimum tax of 16% comes back which also helps. No more billion dollar rebates for Exxon or GE.
The top rate argument doesn't address the problem. It's not going to help that much. Go over the cliff and force the pukes to eat a real shit sandwich. Or just do nothing. I don't mind paying extra taxes if it means there is more money for programs and improvement projects.
