Barack Obama Taxman

When President Barack Obama gave his Deficit reduction speech, which scathingly condemned Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI 1st) blueprint to fiscal sanity through some budgetary belt tightening, one can only conclude that Obama’s answer is to tax the rich.

Since it is April 15th, the traditional tax filing deadline date, it is fitting to serenade the occasion with an apropos tune.

The original version of this George Harrison song was on Revolver, the Beatle’s 7th album, released in 1966.  The song attacked the high level of progressive taxation in the United Kingdom under the leadership of Labor Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
