35. Um, its no one's talking point. Its just true. Given that, it still should happen.
If the rich have spent nearly a decade paying X% for their taxes and then a tax decrease expires, X% becomes larger, and thus they are now paying more for their taxes then they were for the past decade. Any normal person would feel like thats a tax increase. That isn't a "talking point". Its MATH.

We shouldn't pretend like it isn't a tax increase on the rich. Instead we should whole heartedly defend the notion that rich should pay more.
