A point the scholar can’t seem to grasp
Ah yes, our good President Obama, who claims to have been a Harvard professor of constitutional law, was, it seems, never a full-blown professor. Nonetheless he certainly has become an expert at both circumventing our Constitution and debasing our currency.
Deciding who, what, and how to tax is not a presidential responsibility. If Mr. Obama continues to claim to be an authority on constitutional law, I would suggest that he re-read Article I , Section 7 of the Constitution which assigns those duties to the House of Representatives with the approval of the Senate.
While Mr. Obama’s notion of socking it to the rich might well appeal to the masses, he surely knows better, for the truly wealthy such as himself, can and do avoid taxation through a plethora of loopholes, tax shelters, and various other maneuvers unknown and unavailable to the general public. All of which, by the way, the rich purchased from pliant politicians of both parties.
Until our present tax codes get changed (har, har, de har-har!) Mr. Obama’s blathering on about taxing his fellow wealthy citizens ought to be viewed as mere votegarnering hyperbole. Ted Tendick Hayfield, Minnesota
