This is not surprising. When Clinton was elected, I remember him looking at 5 new things to tax. Things that had never been taxed before. Back then there was enough opposition in the congress to stop it. Right now we are phucked. It will be a while before it changes. I say just hunker down for a long, bad ride.

Does anybody know how much the total collective savings of all the US citizens are out there?

Sure, that would be the amount the government intends to increase taxes the next 3.5 years.
