Shorter ThinkProgress: 

“Having the government take 52-63% in taxes isn’t too much! How dare he complain? He should be happy we don’t take it all!”

President Obama yesterday in a speech, after using a ThinkProgress video of Reagan calling it “crazy” for a millionaire to pay lower taxes than a bus driver. Just in case you missed it
