President Barack Obama believes the rich taxpayers actually want to pay more in income taxes. In a speech on April 13, 2011 at George Washington University President Obama said:
“I don’t need another tax cut. … And here’s the thing: I believe that most wealthy Americans would agree with me. They want to give back to their country, a country that’s done so much for them. It’s just Washington hasn’t asked them to.”
I think we should ask.
