"One has to wonder if the President’s push for tax hikes is motivated not by deficit reduction, but rather by a misguided sense of fairness."
The president's push for tax hikes is based on Jealousy. Obama owes everything he has to a series of college and government grants, set-asides, preferential treatment, unearned scholarships, and now political contributions. He has never accomplished anything on his own and is very jealous of anyone who has. He insists on ever higher taxes for successful people and does not care who he hurts in the process.
