WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama says his call for raising taxes on millionaires is not a redistribution of wealth, but a way to free up money for crucial investments in the U.S. economy.
Pitching the so-called Buffett rule for the second straight day, Obama dismissed the notion that the plan is a gimmick. He says it is necessary in order to tackle the country's massive deficits.

yea, the debt he tripled, now has to pay for it and needs the “american people” who work to do so, then blame the debt on us. This double forked tongue POS must go..what a liar..
must tackle the debt by spending all he wants and charging the working people..
He says it is necessary in order to tackle the country’s massive deficits.
What a lying sack of @#$%! Anyone with half a brian knows good and well that that extra revenue will not go toward any deficit reduction!
You've correctly identified who the "Buffet Rule" message is targeted at. Sad thing is the group is big enough to get him re-elected if he can agitate them enough to turnout..
“...Obama says his call for raising taxes on millionaires is not a redistribution of wealth, but a way to free up money for crucial investments in the U.S. economy.”
Yeah... because it’s not like those rich folks earned it or should have any say in the matter... Back to Chicago you Commie. I’ll chip in for a plane ticket there or to Cuba, North Korea, whatever.
Yahoo comments all say this is a scam.
Even on Yahoo sheeple see through this...
I would send Obama back to his country of origin.....if I knew what it was. He ceratinly is not an American capitalist.
Jeeze, now he can’t even keep his lies straight week to week. A few days ago, he admitted the tax wouldn’t produce any significant revenue, but claimed it was “the right thing to do”. The dude’s losing it.... or.. losing it MORE.
Honestly, how can anyone with a functioning brain cell believe what this guy spouts off?
He’s absolutely right. It’s not about “redistribution”, it’s about sending more money to Washington so he can spend more on his special projects.
Let the entrepreneurs invest in the county.
The Government invests money in rat holes. The greatest destroyer of prosperity and jobs that there is.
