87. Numbers
Edited on Sat Dec-11-10 12:11 PM by SOS
At 13K taxable (self-employed with business expense deductions) my Bush tax "cut" is $2.50 a week.
A 50% increase means I pay $1.25 a week more if the whole thing expires.

A) It makes no difference to me. Our finances are already in ruins.
B) $1.25/week (half the cost of one ride on a city bus) is a small price to pay for some economic justice.

On edit - while the billionaire tax rate remains extended, the Making Work Pay credit expires in three weeks.
If you are under $20K your taxes are going UP.
