Ivan Halbach: Action by inaction

Action by inaction

Just so I understand: The Republicans, encouraged by the tea party not to raise taxes, are going to not vote to raise taxes on the top 2 percent to 3 percent but by not voting will raise taxes on everyone?

Perhaps their constituents who are in the other 97 percent might have a different view, if only they would ask.
