Democratic States giving HUGE tax breaks to Millionaires

This is outrageous, the party of the poor and downtrodden allowing greedy millionaires to get away with highway robbery.

Millionaires can breathe a bit easier. While President Barack Obama says he wants to let income tax cuts that benefit only the wealthiest Americans expire in 2013, several states are rolling back tax increases for top earners.

New York's highest tax rate on incomes exceeding $500,000 will fall back to 7.85 percent, from 8.97 percent, this year. Maryland's 6.25 percent tax on incomes above $1 million expired at the end of 2010, while California's top tax rate for millionaires has dropped to 10.3 percent from 10.55 percent.
