49. Sorry but your premise is just nonsensical
you are trying to say that it is progressive to raise taxes on the middle class -- and as I said -- if you want to say that, fine.

Obviously there is no way to prove to you that raising taxes on the middle class is not a progressive policy anymore than you can prove to me that the Earth revolves around the sun.

Yes, the Earth does revolve around the sun. But could you 'prove' it to me in this thread if I wanted to deny it? No.
