Rich should pay their fair share of taxes

"Those making more than $1 million — there were 236,883 such households in 2009 — I would raise rates immediately on taxable income in excess of $1 million, including, of course, dividends and capital gains. And for those who make $10 million or more — there were 8,274 in 2009 — I would suggest an additional increase in rate.”

“My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress. It’s time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice."

“As I got to see more of the world, I started to see there were a lot of things that were unfair and the democrats seem to be doing a little bit more about it."
