If Obama, or other politicians, can figure out a way to only tax the ridicuously overpaid I may be able to jump on board. Overall though I believe tax hikes are not good for the economy.
If Obama stays true to his word I would not be directly affected by the increase in personal income taxes since I am under the $250 mark but I feel I will be directly affected by the increase in corporate taxes through higher prices and potential drag on economy from job losses.
