In one of his many exclusive 1:1 interviews last week with the media, Obama said to Meredith Viera when questioned about the possible unfairness of taxing just the rich to fuel healthcare:

No, it’s not punishing the rich, I think the way I look at it is that if I can afford to do a little bit more so that a whole bunch of families out there have a little more security, when I already have security, that’s part of being a community.

"Part of a being a community"... if someone wasn't aware of the nuances of Obama's political philosophy they might be led to believe that he's in favor of taking money from the wealthy and giving it to the poor. Thankfully none of the political philosophy of his mother, father or grandparents rubbed off on him.
