11. I am, but I'd wager most are more worried about the expiration of the Bush tax cuts.

My position on this is the same as Obama's:

The tax cuts should be made permanent for incomes under 250,000. Let every dollar over that amount go back to Clinton-era tax rates.

It'd be hard for Republicans to argue around the fact that the Clinton years were remembered as good years despite the higher tax rates on top income earners in the 1990s. They'll struggle to paint those tax rates during those years as being disastrous to the US economy. They weren't.
