    FACT CHECK: Are rich taxed less than secretaries? - Yahoo! News

    Barack Obama is in serious trouble with his base--so he is going back to the rich vs. poor rhetoric that worked for him in 2008. It's obvious that from this fact check--that he has distorted facts and figures to manipulate the American public--into this hate mongering of successful people in this country. Comparing earned income to investment income aka a comparison to apples vs oranges--which is taxed at a lower rate. The continual rhetoric on how he is going to make them pay their fair share--when they already pay most of the tax base of this country--while they are also the minut minority in this country. 311 MILLION Americans compared to 237,000 in the 1 million and over income.

    Congrats to the Associated Press for FINALLY calling Barack Obama out on this issue.

    Buffett needs to have his food and drinking water tested for evidence of mind controlling drugs

    So AP is finally reporting what we've been saying all along. Wonder when Reuters will finally come around?

    Wonder how much Buffet is making from this administration??

    AGAIN Federal personal income tax is only one of the taxes paid, and the figures don't account for tax loophole shell game of our tax code.

    Obama is out there stating absurd provable lies and the fact that AP is even calling him on it is a testament to the absurdity of his claims.

    It kind of makes one wonder what the political PAY-OFF is--possibly some kind of WAIVER on that BILLION dollars in taxes that one of Buffet's companies have been fighting the IRS over for the last 10 years?

    THEN re-do the TAX CODE to include EVERYONE--and not just 227,000 Americans--whom already pay the majority of the tax base in this country.

    Paul Ryan is putting together a plan that will be out on paper soon--that gets rid of loop-holes and alot of corporate subsidies--that will increase tax revenue--while being able to lower EVERYONE'S tax rates--and stimulate the economy.

    The MORON you elected is on video recording stating he will not raise taxes during this economic crisis--and is back at it again--simply because he knows he's in serious trouble with his base.
