We have never had a president that relays so heavily on stupid people.

In his weekly address, President Obama encouraged Congress to pass the 'Buffett Rule', which would raise taxes on anyone making over $1 million per year. The President said the legislation, if passed, would make the United States "a little fairer, a little more just and a lot stronger". Without it, he also warned:

"Seniors will have to pay more for their Medicare benefits. Students will see their interest rates go up at a time when they can’t afford it. Families who are scraping by will have to do more because the richest Americans are doing less."
