An Obama win on taxes for rich could still mean middle class takes a hit
Zachary A. GoldfarbWhile many Americans may worry about seeing their income drop if the nation goes over the “fiscal cliff,” Chris Adams has a different problem. An agreement that raises taxes on the wealthy and spares the middle class could still mean that he loses all his income next year.
Laid off in May from an operations job, the resident of Avon Lake, Ohio, has been relying on federal unemployment benefits that expire at the end of month. President Obama wants to extend them, but top GOP congressional aides say the president has little hope of doing that if he continues to play hardball and insist that tax rates on the wealthy rise.
“It’s a lot of added stress,” Adams said.
