The buzz now is all about whether or not Barrry O. wants to raise taxes on persons earning under $250K/yr. (thereby breaking a campaign promise).

What I want to know is whether or not Barry O. wants to raise taxes on persons (artificial and natural) earning more than $250K/yr. - esp. those earning more than $250 million/yr. - you know, the kind of persons who bundle $100K's in campaign contributions to politicians.

Actually, scratch that. I don't want to know.

I heard a quick feature about this taxing issue on NPR's Morning edition Friday a.m. The commentator equated the Obama Administration's position about this to the first Bush's "Read my Lips" promise and pointed out how governing and campaigning require very different skill sets.
