Barack Obama Initiates Class Warfare

The president will call the new tax the “Buffett rule” after billionaire investor Warren Buffett, an Obama supporter who has publicly complained that tax breaks allow him to pay a lower rate than his secretary. We really cannot speak for you folks; however, we here believe that Buffett may have slipped a chip, so to speak.

The White House did not release details of the proposal, so it’s not known what the minimum tax rate for those earning more than $1 million a year would be or how much additional revenue it would produce. Now all things being equal this is classic Obama and his entire administration. He is ready to make a full announcement without providing the particulars. This is really sophomoric in behavior, yet we should all be used to it by now.

According to White House talking points on the proposal circulated to lawmakers, “no household making over $1 million annually should pay a smaller share of its income in taxes than middle-class families’ pay.” However, is this the true and equitable thing to do? If it is then let’s scrap the 14th Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause, let’s see why again? Oh yes, because they make more money. Here’s my beef: What isn’t discriminatory about that idea?
