Really? Obama is a spineless coward. This is class warfare. All this crap is to possibly raise 9 hours worth of spending. The sheep lap this crap up.
The president also invoked the name of Reagan for the second straight day and the third time in weeks.
“I’m not the first president to call for this idea that everybody’s got to do their fair share,” he said. “If it will help convince folks in Congress to make the right choice, we could call it the ‘Reagan Rule’ instead of the 'Buffett rule.'"
Obama also said Reagan had said it was “crazy” that loopholes allowed millionaires to pay a lower tax rate than bus drivers.
“That wild-eyed socialist, tax-hiking class warrior was Ronald Reagan,” the president said. “He thought that in America the wealthiest should pay their fair share, and he said so.” Obama said. “I know that position might disqualify him from the Republican primaries these days, but what Ronald Reagan was calling for then is the same thing that we’re calling for now, a return to basic fairness and responsibility, everybody doing their part.”
