    so tell me, just what are the characters and natures of the types of people that might be drawn to the two different causes?

    your logic would indicate that the 2 causes are contradictory.

    It's suppose to be for people earning under $250,000. I imagine that would include most of the Tea Baggers.

    That number keeps dropping.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    That's because Obama is using tax credits of various strengths to emulate tax cuts. It's somewhat misleading.

    However, that 'number' isn't dropping, it's increasing. It's the layers upon layers of limits on various deductions and credits that allow people to slice and dice the numbers in all sorts of ways.

    Factor in inflation. If that number increased to 500,000 or even 1,000,000,000 it still wouldn't matter.

    I hear it is dropping, that it is around 130K a year now - but I want the back up to prove it.

    so we're supposed to accept without complaint anything government does just because they stick a cookie in our mouths?

    Complaints against government are fine. But if the government is going to take away less of your cookies, it looks hypocritical to complain about more of your cookies being taken away, unless you are fighting on behalf of the top level cookie earners.
