What's the hurt if from Obama's tax hikes if you make more than $250,000 but less than $500,000

This week, a series of ‘angles’ on the debate to kill or keep the Bush Tax Cuts …

First, a couple of context points: I think all of the Bush Tax Cuts should be extended and, I’m not in the business of hepling the Dems with their messaging.  But …

According to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, the average taxpayer earning $200,000 to $500,000, will be socked an additional $988 if Obama jacks tax rates on “the wealthiest” Americans.

True, it’s more than pocket change, but it’s not going to threaten anybody’s lifestyle.

I wonder why Obamatrons aren’t highlighting the under $1,000 number to settle down the ‘almost rich’ who are collateral damage in his class attack?
