Actually, most people will

Actually, most people will pay less taxes under a Democratic administration. Reagan raised taxes twelve times during his administrations. Obama actually cut taxes for the middle class, and historically that tends to be much better for the economy, as cash in the hands of the wealthy tends to stagnate and the only money available is "real loanable funds" for borrowing. It is a shining example of the paradox of thrift.

Only the upper 1% of us pay higher taxes, but because of lower deficits and a boosted economy, paying 39.6% of my earned income as opposed to 35% resulted in a better economy with better ROIs and much higher net cashflow.

Think of it this way: would you rather an economy where you make a million dollars and keep all of it, or a billion dollars and fork half over to the government?
