When the Bush tax cuts expire in 2010, my taxes will go up significantly, as a large portion of my retirement income comes from dividends and capital gains.

I'm still holding out hope that something can be worked out to extend these cuts. The date proves conclusively that they generate additional revenue for the government. They are good for the economy, and they certainly are good for me.

Of course, if the people who won't renew the tax cuts are in power, there won't be any more capital gains for a while, so part of my comment is moot.
