Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary that the Bush era tax cuts were signed into law, and millionaire Paul Egerman is one of a group that says it's time to put an end to them for some people.
The wealthy businessman who founded the medical transcription
company eScription is part of a group of millionaires who think
Bush era tax cuts should stop benefiting the wealthy.
Egerman says putting an end to the tax breaks is one way to help
trim the deficit. He says if the country is really broke then it
can't afford to give tax cuts to millionaires.
Republicans have said that any move to raise taxes as part of
the effort to trim the deficit is a nonstarter.
