Many people believe President Barack Obama's policy of taxing the rich will solve our national debt. False. Taxing the rich to death will not even make a dent in the budget.
The rich already pay the most taxes, while 50 percent of Americans pay no taxes. Obama has already increased our debt by $6 trillion, with little to show for it.
The rich make the country go round. All one has to do is look at the history of Henry Ford, one of the wealthiest men in the world, and all the good he did for the little guy, especially jobs.
To those who believe in taxing the rich, next time go to a poor guy for a house or a car loan or a job. By the time Obama gets through ruining our great nation, that is all who will be left, poor people, just like in Russia.
