Will Democrats Expose you to the Alternative Minimum Tax?


House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) thinks they might, The Hill reports.

Senate Democrats have already seen the light on this one — it would be a bad mistake for the House to leave without preventing more than 20 million American taxpayers from overpaying by about $2,000 on average.

Again: this is all about “Pay-Go,” which is Latin for: “You’re going to pay a lot more in taxes so that we can meet some bean-counter’s imaginary, projected bottom line.”
