Response to Purveyor (Original post)

7. This is the first I am hearing 43.4%

I thought the top rate would only go up to 39.6%. Does the 43.4% include the new Obamacare tax on the wealthy as well?

I am happy to see that President Obama is also pushing for higher rates on capital gains, estate taxes and dividends and not just the top income tax rate. The income tax rate is the least important, IMO, since most of the really rich people make more through capital gains.
