“Today, somebody who has worked his whole life to save for his son’s college has to pay taxes at more than twice the rate of his boss. Where I come from, that man’s hard work means at least as much to the future of the country—not half as much as his boss. Mr. President, I challenge you. Explain why you think a multimillionaire should pay 15 percent on his next million on stock profits, while a fireman has to pay over 30 percent for each extra dollar of overtime. Mr. President, explain how you square that with America’s values.”— John Edwards
