Double Dip Recession

I read some articles today regarding double dip recession, very scary and I hope we don't go there.

Naked Economics: Undressing the Dismal Science (Fully Revised and Updated)An excerpt from Yahoo Finance News "the Federal Reserve underscored misgivings about the recovery, saying employment is showing only gradual improvement, the housing market is languishing and consumer spending is increasing only modestly".

It doesn't make any sense to "increase the income tax rate from 35% to 39.6%, the dividend tax from 15% to a whopping 49.6%, capital gains tax from 15% to 2-%, and a death tax on estates from 0% to 55%" (2010, Frum Forum) while in recovery stage. If we keep more money from our income, we are more likely happy to spend it. If the government takes it - we can't spend it. And if we don't spend, we are holding back the growth of the economy.
