Class Warfare Is Not an American Value

The president has spent a lot of time lately talking about tax "fairness" - the president's term for tax hikes designed not to decrease the deficit or generate revenue but to drive wedges between Americans for the sake of the president's political advantage. This strategy will backfire, however, because envy and class warfare have never been part of the American values the president touted in his State of the Union. Republicans believe we need to focus not on tearing down but on building up by creating an economic environment in which every American can flourish.
