Much of the debate on the Buffet rule, taxes, the budget deficit, etc centers around the argument about fairness.
President Obama has admitted that the Buffet rule has little to do with the deficit or the national debt, but has to do with fairness.
In 2008 the top 10% of earners in the US paid 73% of the total income taxes. Is this a fair number?
If, not, give us a number, Mr. Obama.
