Stephen Moore has an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal about President Obama's claim that rich people want to pay more taxes. He writes: "When taxpayer groups in Massachusetts won an income tax rate cut to 5.3% from 5.85% in 2001, they created an option for those opposed to the cut to file at the old rate. But according to Massachusetts tax records, each year only about 1,000 tax-me-more enthusiasts—fewer than 0.1% of the state's residents—choose the optional higher tax rate. The total raised in voluntary tax contributions for the past tax year was a pitiful $69,000...when liberals say they want higher taxes, they mean on you."
