Obama’s tax cut math a bit fuzzy

During the president’s recent press conference, he stated that his mandate is to provide for the middle class. In order to do that, he said he must not allow a huge tax increase on them. In essence he demands that the Bush tax cut (Bushtaxcutsfortherich, a mantra that the Democrats and the media have drummed into our ears for the past decade) be extended for everyone making below $250,000 a year but allowed to lapse above that level, which he describes as a “small increase for the wealthiest Americans.”
