I always thought we would need to do something to claw back some money after the ridiculous amount of public spending that we have been doing recently. While the tax rate does not effect me I would be hurting if I was in the that tax bracket. Also a 3.5% shrinkage in the economy is pretty dire. Interesting times lay ahead I think.
