Me too. Why didn’t I think of this?

There’s a real simple way to make this all go away Mitt old boy. Like it or not the ball’s in your court.
Obama’s claim that we need to have the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes isn’t going to convince anyone that taxing the rich a little more is fair.
Because Americans have been convinced that taxes, by their very nature, aren’t fair.
There isn’t a single person in this country who doesn’t feel they are being ripped off by government, Federal, state and local, when they look at their pay stub or file their taxes.
Obama can shout “fair share” till the cows come home and the main response he will get from the vast majority of the people is, “ho hum”.
Those same people who know taxes aren’t fair, also see themselves as sacrificing every day to pay those unfair taxes.
WWII saw rationing and shortages of both necessities and luxuries. Everyone (at least in theory) sacrificed for the war effort. Is the war to right our economy any less worthy of shared sacrifice?
The Obama team needs to ask, again and again, “What have the rich sacrificed? What hardships have they suffered? Why should the wealthy be exempt from sharing in the sacrifice?”
It’s time to speak the truth. It’s not about paying a fair share.
It’s about shared sacrifice.
Render unto Ceasar as little as you possibly can even if you have to hide your money in a far away land because you are my chosen and besides, the poor are just lazy bums anyway.
