If allowing tax cuts to expire is the same thing as raising taxes, and if my deductions are more than my tax liability, then shouldn't taking away deductions be considered raising taxes?

It sure would be - for you individually.

Are you saying that just because you found a single case in which an individual's taxes would go up, then you should label the whole plan as a tax increase?

Also if you use this criteria, shouldn't you also say that Obama's plans raise taxes on the poor by a lot more than Romney's?

So if you really cared about the poor and keeping taxes low, you should be an avid Romney supporter.

I can see this debate hurt Obama badly. Even the PA trolls are going to start having to think.
