President Obama goes around telling lies like this one:

Well you know what? If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a plumber or teacher makes me a warrior for the working class, I’ll wear that charge as a badge of honor. Because the only class warfare I’ve seen is the battle that’s been waged against the middle class in this country for a decade.

When in reality the middle class, or middle quintile, of earners under current law pay an effective (“effective means actual percentage of income paid in taxes, after all deductions) federal tax rate of 14.1% compared with the top 20% of earners paying 25.5% of income in taxes and the Warren Buffets of the world, or top 0.1% of earners, pay 30.4%

Meanwhile, the Obama administration has paid the state of Oregon a $5 million bonus for signing up so many of its citizens on food stamps!

While to President rails on the rich, he is also working to increase dependency on the government. Although both parties have long championed the purchase of votes through social programs, Obama seems to be taking class warfare to a new extreme as his method to keep himself and further bring his party into power.

Considering that a majority of American pay no federal income taxes, it is not hard to see where this is going. Maybe we should review how similar tactics worked out when another world leader referred to one class of his people as “bloodsuckers, vampires, and plunderers of the people and profiteers, who fatten on famine.”
