The so'called rich(2%) pay for 95% of the taxes in this country. Obama wants us to pay for 100%. Also, that means when you sell your shares in XOM you will pay even more. By rich that means any couple making $250,000. That means a lot of couples finally at a pay grade that they can put something away for a rainy day, after putting their kids trough college and helping their parents doing community work all their adult life,working long hours and sacrificing to get ahead, the government will now tax their retirement to the into oblivian! Now I get to put other peoples children through college and I don't even get to see the GPA.
