Obama includes self in tax question

  • Article
text size: AAA

A letter to the Daily Herald published April 27 was critical of President Obama for expecting the wealthy to pay a little more. The writer mistakenly said the president is among the wealthy and hasn't included himself. Actually, if the writer had been paying any attention at all, he would have known that the president, on numerous occasions, has said that the wealthy of this nation, like himself, do not need tax cuts and should pay their fair share. He never fails to include himself in that category.

Additionally, the president has cut his salary by 5 percent as a demonstration to others to do the same. There is a great deal of misinformation (or should I say disinformation) available to persons who want to believe the false tales of the conservative media in their relentless criticisms of the president. My suggestion is to watch the president yourself, listen to what he is saying instead of relying on agenda-driven pundits to interpret the news for you.
