Warren -- secretary shouldn't pay a higher tax rate.
That Warren Buffett.
There's no justification for.
It is wrong that in the United States of America a teacher or nurse or construction worker who earns 50000 dollars.
Should pay higher tax rates than somebody pulling in fifty million dollars.
A very busy week for the media began with the president pitching his latest tax plan citing what is now referred to as the -- rule.
So let's start there the media -- -- seems to be that boot.
You know it's time to soak the rich and ask them to pay more money but the rich do pay -- -- a lot of taxes.
It's true I mean it was interesting.
And the people -- -- some people seem to like this speech appointed media certainly didn't and some of the most stalwart liberal columnists -- the president on this.
And and said you know hey wait a minute this is this is not what we want in this isn't.

This -- in a column this week the New York Times David Brooks labeled himself and Obama sacked for believing in all of the hope and change promises.
Have the liberal media lost faith in this president.
I think they're starting to lose faith but they haven't -- lost faith in liberalism and that's a very important distinction but let's go back to what David Brooks said in the big set up for the 2008 campaign.
He went so far as to say that Obama had the best crease in his pants.
That anybody had and therefore he'll make a great president I'm thinking of investing in a dry cleaners and -- must must -- -- over the top they completely abandon any rationale and I hope that as we entered now.
The next campaign we start running some of those sound bytes at excerpts from some of these columns had.

That's one out of tour is now Obama's responsibility that's real progress for Bill Keller in the -- just acknowledging that there are some responsibility.
