You are acting like these ideas are somehow a problem when in fact they are reasonable to most Americans and ideas that are not new, but are familiar in our history.
That you don't see the problem is quite telling.
Obama didn't run on a platform of "eventually" raising taxes on the middle class, he ran on cutting them.
Apparently you are one of the Obama cognoscenti that understands what he will do, despite what he pledged, and have no problem with it.
Raising taxes on the folks who voted for Obama (with the exception of liberal millionaires) will not be considered "reasonable."
You can't play to the herd and then expect them to reason individually.
