If federal income taxes are significantly increased, I suggest that as many people as possible find work where you can make money "under-the-table". I paid so much federal income tax the last 2 years, that if paying more taxes is "doing my part" to help this recession, then screw it. I'm against any bailouts anyway, but I don't get a say in the matter. So I'll do some consulting or something where I can keep all the money. I don't like doing that, but if I end up taking home slightly more than someone making $30K less than me, so be it. I don't work to help America...Who TF does? It's like the gov't is saying "we're gonna spend a boatload of money to try to fix this economy and then bill you all later" And will they bill the $30-$60K workers much? Of course not!! Let's just tax the hell out of people making more than $60K! They don't care if you live in an area where $50 or $60K is peanuts either. Ok, enought cartharsis for me....I feel much better, thank you!
