Here is what it means to me. The Bush-tax-cuts-for-the-rich mean that I pay less taxes. When they went into effect, I got a well deserved tax break. I am not rich by any stretch of the imagination as the media and the DNC would have you believe. So if we are stupid enough to let them expire, then I will get a tax hike which I don't deserve. I did not cause the deficit. I did not fail to show fiscal restraint. It's not my debt. I should not be saddled with it. I have paid more than my share. I already pay more in taxes than I consume. What about you? What is the point anyway? A tax increase will do nothing for the debt. It won't make a bit of difference. So why bother?
So here is my question.
If the Bush cuts are allowed to expire will you pay more, the same or less?
