I agree with your analysis

You're right, I should have been more clear with the terms. After reading your post, I think I also see it from another angle.

I've noticed that it's common for articles to say that "If you make more than $50,000 your taxes will go up by $1,000" (i.e. reader sees a 2% increase), but what they neglect to mention is that the percent change could be an 8.7% increase in revenue to the IRS! (Assuming, say changing from 23% to 25%).
