(FOX NEWS) — From a campaign event, last night:

OBAMA: I’ve been hearing a lot of these Republicans talking about, oh, that’s class warfare, and he just wants to redistribute, and doesn’t believe in work, and he’s trying to create an entitlement society, and this and that and the other. Let me be absolutely clear: I should pay more taxes, and folks in my income bracket should pay more taxes, and certainly folks who are making billions of dollars should pay more taxes, not because I want to take their money and just give it to somebody else. It’s because we’ve got basic investments and basic functions that have to be carried out in this 21st century if we’re going to be able to compete.
