Recently, the U.S. Senate passed a bill continuing the temporary 2001 income tax cuts for people whose yearly incomes are less than $250,000. Ninety-eight percent of us reading this letter would see no jump in our 2013 income tax rates. But Rep. Randy Hultgren is against this Senate bill. He apparently would rather not pass a middle-class tax break unless the top 2 percent of earners also get a share.
