    Class Warfare: The president has spoken incesantly about "shared sacrifice" and the importance of everyone paying his or her "fair share." Yet the people whose taxes he wants to raise already shoulder the biggest burden.

    Throughout the debt-ceiling debate, President Obama rode his talking points hard. He punctuated his lectures about deficits, the debt and the debt ceiling with demands that the debt he and the irresponsible members of Congress have rung up be paid for through a "shared sacrifice" of Americans who pay their "fair share."

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Democrat from Nevada, worked in a variation on the theme. Hardly had the debt deal been done that he didn't start talking about "equal sharing."

    The implication, of course, is that the richest in this country aren't paying enough in taxes.

    Considering that the top 5% owns 90% of everything, they are getting a break only paying 23%.

    Please share the you've got a link to prove that you're not making that up.
    You accept that part, do you also accept that the top fourth pays two thirds of everyone's taxes?
