Everyone has been jumping on the Repubs for getting their pockets picked by Obama and his tax machine. Look, without a deal, everyone's tax rates would have gone up, cap gains up, dividends way up, estate taxes way up. With the deal, about 99% of taxpayers see their rates stay at the Bush levels, both for income and cap gains/divdends, and also for estate taxes.

Well all I can say is congratulations. With the budget deal your taxes should also not go up, and you can remain happy as a clam-- not only will none of your taxes go up, but none of your services or benefits going forward will be cut in the next deal

You should make out like a bandit. The Republicans are exactly counting on folks with the opinion you just stated. Which is why they cave to the Dems

Enjoy your harvest
