Kerry Lies but Not Enough to Matter

Mark Halperin and ABC believe this isn't worth examining, but how does Kerry's pledge to not raise taxes on those earning under $200,000 comport with his website's pledge to restore the top two income tax brackets to the Clinton Administrations' levels?

Lat I checked $161,450 for a married couple filing jointly in 2000 does not equal $200,000? Is this another fake but accurate statement? (And I am being generous in using the joint-filing number. For a single filer, the 2nd highest 2000 bracket begins at $132,600)

The 2003 Tax Table has single filers hitting the 2nd highest bracket at $143,500 and married-jointlys at $174,700.
