Depends on how you define the "middle class."
Obama has said that he would raise taxes on those making over $250,000.
That's no secret.
Bush ran up the deficit so high because he spent and spent and gave tax cuts instead of increases. It made him popular but it put us in a load of
debt that will take years to pay off.
At least Obama is trying to pay as he goes.
We all want all kinds of services from our government but are not willing to pay for them.
It's likely we will all see some increases in our taxes but if it helps us get out of the present recession and pays for universal health coverage I
don't mind paying a little more.
