26. no, actually it keeps many of those tax cuts for the rich

the top 1% still get $40 billion a year in tax cuts
the top 4% still get another $40 billion a year in tax cuts
and the other 15% that makes up the top 20% get another $80 billion a year in tax cuts

$160 billion a year in tax cuts for the top 20%
$42 billion a year in tax cuts for the bottom 40%

clearly a plan that favors the rich

and actually it is not Boehner's problem to get it past the House. He can take the high ground and swat that offer away. Clearly with this offer a) the President is not being bi-partisan, because he is only offering his original tax plan and b) is doing nothing about our serious long term debt problems.

Heck, how does this plan even pass the Senate?
