3. LOL. The "home mortgage interest deduction limit" trick again.

The wealthy don't "do" mortgages. They pay for their houses in cash. Such a "limit" wouldn't affect them at all. You can dismiss anyone who proposes any scheme that doesn't substantially raise the top marginal rate as unserious.

All of this over a measly 3% increase in taxes that only applies to income over an amount that over 98% of Americans will never see in their lifetimes. Give me a break. These people should be thankful the top rate isn't triple what it is now (like when their Saint Ronnie was president) and that their lifeless bodies aren't swinging from lamp posts in the town square.
