The DCCC would have you believe that they’re looking out for average Americans, but that’s not the case. Firstly, contrary to Democratic talking points, not raising tax rates is not the same as a tax cut. Additionally, if the Democrats get what they want, tax rates for families making more than $250,000 would increase. Fiscally conservative Republicans understand that the fiscal cliff cannot be averted by increasing the tax burden on wealthier Americans and job creators. But to the Left, that just doesn’t suit:
