All is fair in love and soaking people who succeed.

Mr. Stephen Moore from The Wall Street Journal decided to do a fairness quiz on the current guy living in the White House and no, calling it the White House isn't racist... Wait I am a republican, so yes it is. Anyway back to the quiz, do you think President Obama passed the quiz? Pencils up... You decide.

"President Obama has frequently justified his policies—and judged their outcomes—in terms of equity, justice and fairness. That raises an obvious question: How does our existing system—and his own policy record—stack up according to those criteria?

Is it fair that the richest 1% of Americans pay nearly 40% of all federal income taxes, and the richest 10% pay two-thirds of the tax?

Is it fair that the richest 10% of Americans shoulder a higher share of their country's income-tax burden than do the richest 10% in every other industrialized nation, including socialist Sweden?

Is it fair that American corporations pay the highest statutory corporate tax rate of all other industrialized nations but Japan, which cuts its rate on April 1?"
