President Obama cut a video, distributed by his reelection, to reiterate his belief that the wealthiest Americans still arent paying their fair share of taxes and to outline a second-term agenda ranging from environmental policy to gun control.
Obama started by celebrating the tax increases making our tax code more progressive than its been in decades, he said that will take place because of the fiscal cliff deal.
Obviously, there is still more to do when it comes to reducing our debt, Obama said in the video. And Im willing to do more, as long as we do it in a balanced way that doesnt put all the burden on seniors or students or middle class families, but also asks the wealthiest Americans to contribute and pay their fair share.
Obama, who is vacationing in Hawaii, cut the video for his campaign list. President Obama recorded a video to update supporters like you on whats in the agreement and what it means for you, Obama for America campaign manager Jim Messina said in an email today. . .

Maybe Obama should be mentioning this to Al Gore, who purposely purchased Al Jazeera in 2012 so that he would be exempt from paying Obama’s higher taxes..Hey Obama, looks like your leftist buddies are refusing to pay their “fair share”
Evil never sleeps.
Rush said it today, I agree, this is about keeping the “little guy” down. The people being hammered are those that make income. Those that are wealthy, and generate their wealth from accumulated assets didn’t get touched.
Obama will be sure to keep small business owners from becoming large business owners.
“Obama, who is vacationing in Hawaii, cut the video for his campaign list.”
You are using my hard-earned dollars to pay for your MILLION DOLLAR vacations and you DARE to say I don’t pay my fair share when 100% of the people who pay NO TAXES vote for you?
yes, most of the people Obama calls “rich” are not paying their fair share of taxes......
they (and the rest of us taxpayers) are all paying too damned much!
we need a substantial tax cut ... or the economy will continue its downwards spiral as all of Obama’s new taxes and regulations force more and more layoffs and shut-downs
Evil never is satisfied either. It is what is going on in our world today. IMHO
We’re becoming a Communist state.
And there's only one way he can be stopped - GOP leaders need to understand whats going on here and throw away the rule book, like he and his party have.
That is, if they really want to stop him.
Here’s the answer.
The exact amount of money NOT stolen by the IRS from working people and STILL paid out in Government spending is $16.7 trillion dollars, give or take.
The only way a marxist regime can take your property, earnings and life, is to take away your guns first.
And that is exactly what he has done. The birth of a new auto manufacturer from the bondholders of GM debt were denied their rightful claim so that failed GM could remain in business. And the entire next generation of big banks have been shut down and swallowed by the current lot of failing banks-too-big-to-fail so that when they finally are allowed to fail, no one will be there to take their spot. Obama's handlers have done a splendid job of ensuring that America never takes it spot on the world stage as a superpower ever again.
Hmmm, and how many jobs have been created since the Bush tax cuts were enacted?
I’m also p. sure that the Great Recession came soon after President Bush removed many, many layers of regulations. But will conservatives learn anything from that? Probably not.
But please keep voting against your own best interests, I forget that you don’t consider yourselves “poor/middle-class” but “temporarily embarassed millionaires.”
OK Obama, what is the “fair share”?
It has already be shown that if all the rich were taxed 100% we could run the country a short time.
But hey, let’s not lose a great demonization strategy!
No, we're not. We're more in danger of becoming a corporate oligarchy than we are a communist state. Stop being ridiculous.
The hedge fund owners (Soros) are exempted
