Yes, taxes are going up. The American people voted for the massive ObamaCare tax. The American people returned Obama into office and he wants to raise taxes on the 50% of Americans who didn't vote for him. 49% of Americans pay no income tax...so they're happy to get 'free stuff' from the half of Americans who do pay tax.
The Tea Party failed to prevent the USGOV take-over of 20% of the economy (health care). The Tea Party failed to inspire fiscal responsibility in an irresponsible nation. And the Gimme culture won. I hope they're happy with what they get.
