Not Fair

President Obama keeps carping about the need for rich people like Mitt Romney to pay more in federal taxes. Well, Romney paid $6.2 million to the IRS. Is he getting $6.2 million more in government services than the 47 percent of citizens who, subsidized by people like Romney, are paying nothing or are getting a check back? Of course not. If you want to talk about fairness, that is clearly not fair. When is enough enough? Never, with Obama and Co.

Meanwhile, it turns out that Warren Buffet’s hard-pressed secretary earns between $200,000 and $500,000–making her a member if the “1 percent.” Poor woman! It’s not fair!
