I'm trying to figure out what Obama is actually proposing. For a joint filer with an AGI of $249K, would 25% be the tax bracket, or would it be 28%?

Without stat language your guess is as good as mine. What I've heard and read is "preserve the Bush-era cuts for those under...." Since for 2012 joint filers with taxable income of $249K are in the 28% bracket I assume they still would be if that statement is to be taken literally.
