"With Tax Break Expired, Middle Class Faces Bigger Burden in 2006"

As tax deadline day looms large on this Easter Sunday, I urge you to read an eye-opener of a piece on the front page of today's New York Times, as titled above, by David Cay Johnston, which reveals that, unless Congress acts swiftly, the middle class will face a grave tax burden in 2006 in the wake of now expired Alternative Minimum Tax which will most egregiously impact those of us with children who earn between $50,000 and $200,000 annually while leaving those who earn more than $1 million a year, like our friend Dick Cheney, unscathed, or with huge tax refunds!

An educated taxpayer is this administration's worst customer, and we are grateful to reporters like Mr.Johnston for the opportunity, and the ammunition, to prevail upon Congress, as well as remind our representatives to work for equity as we may not be sure of much in this cockeyed world, but of this we can be, without the middle class, they will lose the 2006 election.
