Politico- Washington University poll: 60% favor raising taxes on those earning >$250K

http://www.politico.com/story/2012/12/battleground-poll-hike-taxes-on-the-rich-84824.html





A new POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll finds that 60 percent of respondents support raising taxes on households that earn more than $250,000 a year and 64 percent want to raise taxes on large corporations.

Even 39 percent of Republicans support raising taxes on households making more than $250,000. Independents favor such a move by 21 percentage points, 59 to 38 percent.

Only 38 percent buy the GOP argument that raising taxes on households earning over $250,000 per year will have a negative impact on the economy. Fifty-eight percent do not.

1. I am not in favor of raising taxes on households earning more than $250,000.

However, I am in favor of raising taxes on income in excess of $250,000.

There is a big difference.

And, one of the biggest republican successes is creating and sustaining the erroneous concept that the proposed tax increase would apply to the entire $250,000 once that threshold is exceeded, when in fact, it is proposed to tax only the amount over that number.
