  •  I am still confused about the sequester (0+ / 0-)

    If no deal is reached, will the capital gains and/or dividend tax rates go up, or only the rates for earned income?

    Also, what about the estate tax cut that Republicans extorted the president to sign in 2010 in exchange for extending unemployment benefits and the payroll tax holiday. Is that set to expire or is it permanent?

    And if the Republicans vote "present" on the middle class tax cut and nothing else, would the defense and other budget cuts that are part of the sequester happen?
