10. Capital gains go from 15 to 20%, I think.

I think they were at 20% before the Bush cuts. Just as important is the corporate minimum tax of 16% that comes back with the "cliff".

They won't go over. This 2% increase on the top bracket is not a win but they'll act like it was a decisive victory and worth the massive safety net cuts that will be traded off for them.

Even when we "win", we lose.
