Durbin: $250,000 A "Reasonable Number" To Start At On Tax Increases
On CNN's "State of the Union" this morning, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said increasing tax rates on Americans who make $250,000 is "reasonable."
"Push the special interest groups to the side for the moment, and what I hear the president saying is, we're not going to solve this by asking the wealthiest to pay their fair share, but it will be part of the solution," he continued. "And what I hear from the Republican side is, well, what is the rest of the solution? That is the beginning of a negotiation."
