Is this pandering to constituents? Surely. Do all politicians do it? Absolutely. It does not excuse it, but the inference (at least the one I got) is that this tactic is somehow uniquely Republican. Before I start, let me say at this point I do not fall into the ‘greater than $250k’ bucket currently…

There also seems to be more of a “stick it to ‘em – they deserve it those greedy so-and-sos” feel from many of the supporters of the tax increase. That’s a terrible reason for anything. This is followed closely by “if we don’t tax ‘em more the nation will go bankrupt”. Is putting the burden of a nation on the backs of a small percentage of Americans fair? Then, finally, I hear on rare occasions the only argument attempted to be rooted in reason– “the more money you make the more government resources you use”. Not sure I buy into this, but let’s pretend I do. Does this mean that people who don’t pay income taxes use no government resources? If the logic is sound then let’s apply it universally to all income brackets.
