Yes, this is precisely why Obama the Tyrant has targeted "the rich" in all his public statements.
And like every tyrant, he only targets "the rich" in order to establish precedent. Once he has been permitted to remove the protection of the rule of law from "the rich" and treat all their assets as though they were owned by the government, he will take those precedents and apply them everybody else. That's how tyrants always do it.
Foolish Progressives, please get a clue: his target is not "the rich," it's YOU.
