I’m okay with paying taxes. But the dude who owns my house and makes more than me? He should pay more taxes. And the guy who sent out that sad letter about messing up Netflix? That dude should pay, like, way more taxes than either of us.
“It is wrong that in the United States of America a teacher or a nurse or a construction worker who earns $50,000 should pay higher tax rates than somebody pulling in $50 million.
Anybody who says we can’t change the tax code to correct that, anyone who has signed some pledge to protect every single tax loophole so long as they live, they should be called out.” —-President Obama (9/19/11)
