It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is no good and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever.
If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen.
This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened.

Something very few people (outside of accountants) know about is the AMT.
My accountant told me that if Bush did not sign the patch for the AMT
in 2007, I would have received $1,800 less in my refund.
I had never heard of the AMT and I bet most people have not heard of it. I am sure Obama, would not sign the patch because it applies to the rich
individuals earning more than $40,250.
The Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) adjusts your tax liability to recapture some tax benefits. AMT is an alternative method for calculating your taxes. The regular income tax uses your adjusted gross income (AGI), then subtracts your standard deduction or itemized deductions, and then subtracts your personal exemptions, to arrive at taxable income. To calculate AMT, you start with your AGI, and then add or subtract any adjustments allowed under AMT rules, to arrive at taxable income for AMT purposes. You then calculate your AMT tax at a 26% or 28% tax rate.
Because AMT does not allow the standard deduction, personal exemptions, or certain itemized deductions, your tax under AMT rules may be higher than your tax under regular tax rules.
Generally, AMT may apply to individuals earning more than $40,250. AMT also applies to people who have a large amount of standard or personal exemptions, exercised incentive stock options, who take a net operating loss deduction, who have certain other types of income, or claimed certain business-related tax credits. AMT is calculated using Form 6251
