    As we face the ďfiscal cliff,Ē the Republicans in Congress still resist President Obamaís intention to reinstate the pre-Bush Era taxes on the wealthy in this country.

    I would like to remind them of something: The prices of basic goods and services necessary to survive are the same for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

    If the wealthy were required to pay the same percentage of their income for those basics as the poor and middle class, they would think that President Obamaís proposed tax increases were a bargain.
