You can see exactly how much more in the chart on the left. (Just click the photo to embiggen.) Thanks Washington!
Now, thanks to CDR Salamander, you can see how the fiscal cliff will affect you firsthand. Even better, you can see how New Yorkers reacted when they heard the good news.

Oh, this is just rich:
They’re ready to jump off a real cliff. New Yorkers of all income levels got a rude awakening yesterday when they saw in The Post how much more they will pay in taxes next year without a fiscal-cliff deal by Jan. 1.
“It’s that much higher?” asked IT worker Vikas Kataria, 34, who discovered that his combined household income of about $250,000 per year will cost him nearly $10,000 more in taxes.
Wow, sucks to be him. I have little faith a deal will get done in time, especially with a Senate that has refused to pass a constitutionally-mandated budget in four years.
