OK, I've read thru the article (one time), and it's obvious the slant of the article
is talking about the "misfortunes" of families and individuals who have significant annual incomes.
Personally, I don't feel badly for any family earning over $100k/yr, particluarly about ~1% tax increases.

The insulting thing for me is the artwork in the pic where
the single parent looks so sad with $260k,
the retired couple appears non-white with no increase in taxes
... (you know "those people" always get the breaks)... ,
and the white family-of-4 looks so sad with $650,000 annual income.
... (and you know it's the single Asian women who are in those jobs to earn big-time)

As said above, I don't feel at all badly for anyone earning $100k+/yr over such tax increases.

But such is the world of the WSJ...
