Some "deal" Congress just made. They signed us up for another $4 trillion in debt.
Average Americans pay substantially more taxes now than before. But don't worry:
In praising Congress's huge new tax increase, President Obama said Tuesday that "millionaires and billionaires" will finally "pay their fair share." That is, unless you are a Nascar track owner, a wind-energy company or the owners of StarKist Tuna, among many others who managed to get their taxes reduced in Congress's New Year celebration.In other words, business as usual.
