DOES IT MATTER? WHY DOES THE PRESIDENT CARE? READ ….and tell me…

President Obama tweeting

The above headline is from the Washington Post.  The President wants higher tax rates presumably to get more revenue.  But suppose he could get the SAME revenue as tax rate increases by closing loopholes and limiting deductions that ONLY impact the rich.  Would that not be satisfactory?  He would get the revenue from the rich – just not via a higher tax rate.  If this is not satisfactory to President Obama, why not?
