HOWARD DEAN: The only problem is -- and this is initially going to seem
like heresy from a progressive is -- the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes, not just the rich. And it's a good start. But we're not
going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across
the board, to go back to what Bill Clinton had and his taxes. And if we
don't do that, the problem is the pressure is going to be on spending
If we do go over the cliff, one thing that's going to be kind of funny is all the people screaming "I'm not rich, why did MY taxes go up?"
