15. To be clear: The Bush tax cuts for the rich are NOT dead. They have been partially enshrined.

The old rate of a upper middle class/rich person: 39%

The 2012 rate of an upper middle class/rich person: 33%

The new rate of an upper middle class/rich person per the current deal: 33% up to $400,000 for an individual; a few more % points for amounts OVER $400,000.

It is NOT 39% for all income for those who earn $400,000 and over, which was the old rate.
