    I bet they will work something out this year. It wouldn't hurt the top 1 percent to pay a little more. The rest of us are just getting by and many of them are billionaires. As of Sept 2012 Bill Gates net worth was a tad more then 66 billion dollars. That is 66,000 millions. WOW.

    40 million in US fell off the fiscal cliff years ago; They just have not hit the bottom yet.And when they do all of the kings horses and (men), including Bill Gates, will even try to put them back together.
    Want to protect your assets for eternity put then in tax free foundations and live upon investment incomes like royaltyRoyalty that passes out gratuitys to favored ones.
    This fight over funds is not a thing to do with poor but is a fight by the high and upper middle class over who will get the most out of a failing economy.
    An economy that cannot be sustained except for the benefit of the top one third of nations people with the vast majority of that economy being needed to keep a political identity solvent.

    What good if they tax the 1% if only the top 30% benefit from it?
    The top 30% are but employees who exist to serve the interest of that 1%!
    Around 40% have either already fallen off the cliff or are hanging on by fingertips.
    The middle 30% are now crying for what remains of a declining economy that has not harmed then very much yet but as they lose toys and joys they once thought secure their whing and woe is me cries gets louder each day.
