Obama should hold firm on higher taxes for the wealthy

(Baltimore Sun/KAL )

In addressing the so-called "fiscal cliff" of tax increases and deep spending cuts, President Obama needs to hold firm in letting the tax breaks for the wealthy expire ("Obama talks tough," Nov. 15).

This is a matter of fairness on tax policy that he stressed during the campaign. Exit polling showed that 60 percent of the electorate support higher taxes for the wealthy.

That's where Congress should start in working out a balanced approach to keeping the country from going off the "fiscal cliff."
