If the top 2% would start paying taxes, the nation could be saved. Instead, the tax burden is solidly on the poor, while the rich pay virtually no taxes thanks to unfair tax breaks that are denied to the poor. Plus, the rich all get corporate subsidies, so in addition to paying no taxes at all, each of the top 2% get literally billions of dollars in tax money siphoned from those who make less than minimum wage. This is the unfairnes that the Republicans want to continue, whereas Obama is merely asking the super rich to contribute a couple hundred dollars each from their multi billion dollar empires so some poor person can get enough relief that will allow them to feed their children something other than tree bark for dinner.
