Unless the government is running a surplus, when you argue that higher taxes will make people or businesses move, shouldn't you also make an argument about what to cut? Otherwise you're increasing debt. The reasonable thing to do is shift the burden to the wealthier among us.

@wjmaggos There are several things getting cut that will directly affect me. If the military was actually audited or cut (yeah yeah cut in the increase) I would be more inclined to agree. This is a sick joke. A 23% cut to Amtrak is a big cut. Remember what happened the last time congress cut their budget on the day of the vote. It's also how I get to and from seeing my family in Virginia. Let's keep those trains safe and on time! And move over CSX.
