Since we are re-running the 2008 campaign and back to the Bush tax cuts, I'll repost this point. Extending tax cuts on tax brackets lower than $250,000 still benefits people making more money than that for their first $249,999. So richies have no right to complain that they're getting shafted. They get just as much a tax cut as everyone else, this just ensures that they don't get more of a tax cut than everyone else, like they have been getting under the pure Bush cuts.
In the corrupted currents of this world, offence's gilded hand may shove by justice, and oft 'tis seen the wicked prize itself buys out the law
