Obama: 'Patriotic' for Rich to 'Pitch In' ... 'This Isn't Wild-Eyed Socialism'

President Obama at a Maryland town hall on Friday: “This idea of balance, this idea of shared sacrifice, of a deficit plan that includes tough spending cuts but also includes tax reform that raises new revenue, this isn’t just my position, this isn’t just the Democratic position, this isn’t some wild-eyed socialist position. This is a position that has been taken by people of both parties and no party.” (Fox Nation)
