Of course, Senator Kyle is absolutely correct that increased economic growth will generate more wealth for the country and, by extention, more tax revenue. Where he is wrong is in assuming the President simply wants to increase govt revenue. In fact, the President is on record as saying he believes it's simply unfair that the rich are rich. His desire to increase taxes on the rich is, at least in part, a punitive measure that serves to address this perceived lack of "fairness."
