33. Thank you Bernie
You've helped a few more find their spine..I hope. Obama cut taxes for the middle class who seemed not to even notice, which tells you how small it was. The average middle class tax bracket pays about 10% of it's gross income in taxes after deductions according to the IRS and that was just about what ours was. The one drawback is the marriage penalty would return. But for a democratic president to actually allow SS to be defunded is unprecedented. That should be stopped in it's tracks. I too am fine with the cutoff at 1 mill.
