    By asking "the rich" to pay?

    The President is pitting American against American, which is typical of leftist class warfare everywhere.

    There's a line in a novel by King in which the judge is asked who should do the hard things in life. The answer is, the ones who can. I more more taxes than some do. It doesn't bother me. I make a fine living, and I get a lot of benefits from this country. So, stop whinning. Stop with the class warfare (that sword swings both ways you know). And work within the system we have.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The system that is in place, and ibeing encouraged, is class warfare.

    Certainly you must be aware of who pays most of the taxes in this country already and now thy are being asked to pay more, while the whimsical spending continues. The claqss warfare is already in place and is now being used as political propaganda by the President. Americans should find this unacceptable but as a sign how much the country has changed, they not only buy into the idea, the Left rallies behind it.
