"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that have allowed some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share."

Sounds like Obama, right?

It’s actually Ronald Reagan. Watch video of this speech from 1985, compared with Obama’s recent tax hike speech, brought to you by ThinkProgress.

What has Obama done for LGBT Americans?

There’s still a LOT of stuff left to do, but damn we did get a lot of stuff done.

"Middle-class families shouldn’t pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires. It’s hard to argue against that."

President Obama (via thedailyfeed)

(And yet, they keep trying to do just that.)

Obama to make tax-the-wealthy push … and credit Warren Buffett
Remember how Warren Buffett wrote that the government should raise the taxes of the super-wealthy … you know, folks like him? Well, it looks like someone with a lot of power to put that plan into action read that New York Times editorial. Obama’s going to make a push to tax the super-wealthy (those who make more than $1 million per year) at the same rate as the middle-class, and he’s calling it the “Buffett Rule.” Great selling point for Obama, but will it be enough for all the other rich people in Congress? Good question. (photo via Medill DC) source
