Via Weekly Standard:
According to the Wall Street Journal, “Tickets to Monday’s [fundraising] dinner were $35,800 per person, with $5,000 going to the Obama campaign and the rest going to the Democratic National Committee. That’s the maximum contribution allowed by law.”
So it’s no wonder the president didn’t mention his plan to hike taxes on the rich!
Hours after delivering a White House speech that called on wealthy Americans to pay higher taxes, President Barack Obama dined with some of these very Americans in New York. He was expected to raise more than $2 million for his reelection campaign.
He didn’t mention his plan to tax the rich, at least not in front of reporters.
