‘FAIRNESS’: LABOR SEC SAYS ‘MILLIONAIRES & BILLIONAIRES‘ HAVE AN ’OBLIGATION’ TO PAY MORE TAXES
Speaking at Al Sharpton’s annual convention of the National Action Network in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis told her audience that “millionaires and billionaires” have “an obligation” to pay more in taxes.

“It’s about fairness,” Secretary Solis said while explaining President Obama’s re-election platform.“It’s about fairness in the workplace; it’s about fairness in education; and it’s about fairness in terms of what services are provided by government. And if we can’t have say-so in that, then this isn’t the dream that all of us have aspired to be a part of.”
“If people aren’t paying their taxes, those that can afford it, the billionaires and millionaires — even the folks as you’ve heard yesterday that were in the White House that agreed to pay more. They want to pay more because they know it’s their obligation!” she added:

Solis spoke of her own experiences growing up as a first generation American and said that her parents were “seeking the American dream for their children.” She touted Labor Department programs that help veterans, minority women, and the long-term unemployed while criticizing Republicans for wanting to reduce the safety net.
She also spoke about President Obama’s policies, saying that they’re intended to help everyone.
“And I know how are economy can come back and I realize that all of us have our own way of making a difference in this country. And I know that the president believes that,” she said.

“That’s why he’s putting forward an agenda that says he wants to see an America, an America that helps every single one of us. Not those that are privileged, not those that can afford fancy lawyers and lobbyists but people, everyday people.”
“An America, as he says it, that is built to last for every single one of us and our children and our grandchildren,” she added.
The Labor Secretary continued:
President Obama has said that in the face of our challenges we’re going to have to answer a central question as a country: can we succeed as a country where a shrinking number of people do increasingly well while a growing number struggle to get by?
Or are we better off when everyone gets a fair shot and everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same rules?
That is what is at the heart of this national debate that the president has brought us into –and the other side of the aisle — because this is where we know we have to go. We have to have this discussion.
[...]
So I want to ask you if you’re going to help us march again. I want to ask you if you’re going to help us organize and I want to make sure that we’re accountable and that we are out there and that we not just fire ourselves up, you know, get excited, but I mean that we give it all that we got.
“We’re better off when everyone gets a fair shot,” she said.

    What is fair? How much do you want to take from someone's hard earned, or maybe not so hard earned money? What is the cut-off amount? What is the base amount? How much should someone sitting on the couch pay? How much should second, third, or more generation welfare pay? If one has no skin in the game or a politician, it is very easy to spend(read tax) someone else's money. Although I am not in the highest tax bracket, I do pay taxes and ask myself, "If they tax the 'rich' a bit more, where will it end?" And I answer myself, "It ain't gonna' be with the 'rich' and you can believe that."

    We could take every penny of their money and come nowhere close to paying down on the debt.

    DULLARD - they do not pay less...you amongst others who suffer from terminal stupidity cannot seem to figure out the difference between a payroll tax income and dividends from investments...

    Please go back to school, educate yourself at a Conservative school not socialist marxist colleges of the communist...Learn the difference and maybe you too can be rich some day - Nah, silly me, won't happen...

    you must be forgetting that the lower rates for investment income are the result of investor lobbying ... oh and by the way - flagged for obnoxiousness or hate speech or cyber-bullying or something ...

    Lets test your LIES...

    I bet you do not pay between 28-35% for if you did, that means you would make upwards of $265K a year - do you make that kind of money...

    Secondly, those who do not pay taxes are investors into a business like your heros from GE who made billions and paid - wait for it, wait for it - ZERO taxes...of course that fair because they are socialist swine like obama...

    God you fricken people are dullards...
