It's not class warfare...

By John Martin - Posted on 30 June 2011

...when you say we should eliminate tax loopholes or get rid of subsidies in the tax code. So when President Obama discusses eliminating the corporate jet loophole as one of the teeny-tiny things we could be doing on the revenue side to reduce the deficit, that doesn't mean he doesn't like people with jets, or CEO's, or rich people. And it doesn't mean that he's blaming rich people on our economy woes (although some are to blame), as Marco Rubio would have us believe:

 “Everybody here agrees that our tax code is broken,” he says, and he is open to discussing tax reform. “But don’t go around telling people that the reason you are not doing well is because some rich guy is in a corporate jet or some oil company is making too much money.”
