My post clearly was talking about an increase in the marginal rate.
If you actually read what I wrote (the part that you did not highlight that precedes what you highlighted)...
... "a 5% increase in only those dollars which we earn above $250,000"....
A 5% increase in "only those dollars which we earn above $250,000" would mean an increase in our taxes in the amount of zero if we earn exactly $250,000.
Your response apparently covers a totally different scenario which entails a discussion of expiration of all the tax cuts.
