Why not just raise the income level and extend the tax cut?
I raise this compromise in the face of the arguement that after paying for college tuition and blah blah blah $250,000 isn't actually that much money, so extending the tax cut is unfair.

Well said jewjew.... I find it funny that people are saying the "wish" they made that much money... My question to them~ What are THEY doing to change their life to make their "wish" a reality? What choices did they make in their life up to this point~that stopped them from achieving this "wish"? Who is to blame? I have seen more people come from "nothing" and work their way up to something because they seized opportunity and didn't wait and "wish" it would be handed to them. People work hard, make sacrifices to reach $250,000++ Many are small business owners who started with little to nothing. So, others feel they want to punish those who worked for the opportunity because they reached "x" amount of dollars. An amount set by bureaucrats. "US vs. Them mentality", indeed. What happens when bureaucrats decide $100,000 is worthy of more taxes? $75,000? $50,000?
