Was Obama sending a signal to the very wealthy and the Military Industrial Complex that he wasn't going to cut their large profits?







President Barack Obama joked Tuesday that he wanted to reconsider his position on letting taxes rise on the richest Americans after filing his return. He and the First Lady paid 26 percent on their $1.7 million income in 2010.

“There’s a moment there when you look at the figure you’re paying and say, wow, let me think about my position on taxing the wealthy here,” he quipped at a town hall in Northern Virginia.
