    I've heard the president say that his taxes are among those that would go up under his plan.

    His making a personal donation would be a fine gesture but it would do nothing to fix the deficit.

    Adjusting the taxation system so that the rich pay a comparable amount to the middle classes is "fleecing"?

    Did you read the article? Even if you took ALL their money it wouldn't do much at all. That's what I was referring to. Making them pay the same as the middle class is all well and good but it won't fix the problem. Entitlement spending needs to be drastically reeled in.
