In 2012, Barack Obama was reelected with 50.5 percent of the popular vote and 332 electoral votes. He wants to restore taxes on the wealthiest 2 percent to the level before the Bush tax cut, but protect the bottom 98 percent from a tax increase, including households and businesses with incomes under $250,000.
Sixty percent of Americans support Obama’s plan, so it should pass, unless Republicans block it. Maybe people should contact their representatives in Congress.
