Actually, the tax cuts mean that the taxes drawn from the middle class will make up a larger percentage of the total taxes, a completely different thing than their taxes actually rising. Is that unfair? That depends on wether you think it's unfair that 1% of taxpayers will now only be paying 20% of the nations taxes. But it's amazing what people can make you think by showing you munbers the way they want you to see them.
