If President Obama cared about government fairness rather than the
mysterious decisions of providence, if he actually cared about equal
protection under the law rather than under God, he would support a flat
tax, like Steve Forbes and Gov. Rick Perry. This is not a difficult
concept to understand: Everyone should play by the same rules and pay
the same rate.
Ah, but here comes the objection to the heavens: But it’s not fair that certain people have and make more money than others! Well, they pay from a higher principal, for one thing, and for another, how exactly does one decide what is a “fair” rate? Why does the Buffett Rule push for 30 percent? Where did they get this number? Are only Harvard Law graduates qualified to make this judgment, or is the Oracle from Omaha a real oracle?
And that's all President Obama has to offer us.
