I'm sure this is old news for the people living in the US, but I just heard about this. If you don't know what the title is referring to then you should watch this video:
Now, apparently a lot of people in the US are not pleased with what Obama said here and it's become quite a big deal. I don't get that. Do people really believe that they got successful just because of their own hard work? I'm totally with Obama here when he says that people who earn more should pay more taxes. It's how the system is here in Norway and this country's economy is doing remarkably well compared to the USA. From the videos I've seen it on YouTube, it seems like people are worried that small businesses will not be able to survive because of the high taxes. But the taxes won't affect them that much since they are small businesses. Meanwhile people who have a lot of money should also give more money to the society cause they are economically capable of doing so. The taxes won't be that high that it will turn the rich to poor. That is just ridiculous thinking.
I'm no Obama fanboy who agrees with everything he says, but I agree with what he says in that video. And I can not believe people who are saying that he is trying to ruin the American dream. What do you guys think? Agree? Disagree? I'd love to hear everyones thoughts.
