I know a few individuals who over the last 10 years have built small businesses and amassed a small fortune, over $2 mill, the trouble is this and they will tell you the same, the rich STAY rich by NOT spending their money. Thats the secret, once you have it you DONT SPEND IT. That is what they, and their new found friends and associates tell me. So this give the wealthy a big tax break to get more money out to the little guy is a big steaming pile of BS. Also, what income bracket is this " Middle Class" if we are giving a tax break to the top 10% , would that be thise making more than $200K?
