Fox News' Brit Hume: Obama's Budget Plan "Will Rely On Higher Tax Rates"

(Real Clear Politics) - Brit Hume says if President Obama wants more money out of the rich, then the economy needs to grow.

"Under the circumstances, the higher income tax payers can hardly avoid contributing to deficit reduction. The only precondition for that is a growing economy. The more it grows, the more the so-called rich pay. More in dollar terms and more in percentage terms," Brit Hume said on FOX News.
