5. That's a good point, but even Norquist was squirming to find a way out of his own rhetoric during

the debt ceiling crisis. He left the window open for his gang of Frankenstein's monsters by saying that closing loopholes and 'lowering rates' does not amount to a tax increase. So...who cares if the arithmetic doesn't add up. Teabaggers don't DO arithmetic.

So....you close every loophole in the tax code to those who earn more than $250K (from any/all) sources, and then 'lower the rates' by 1%, to give Norquist and the GOP some 'cosmetic cover.'

This is probably the only time in history when the President will have this kind of power over Congress. IF THEY DO NOTHING, taxes will increase, and the Presidential VETO gives the President the power to make sure they can't do anything about either the tax increases of the sequester. It's the biggest Presidential 'CLUB' I've seen in my lifetime.
