Mika: We'll Have 'Class Warfare on its Worst Levels' if Rich White Men Don't Contribute More

Tax the rich.

Speaking about the budget crisis on Morning Joe this morning, Mika Brzezinski said that rich white men need to contribute more to the budget solution. Otherwise, our society will have "class warfare on its worse levels."

Joe Scarborough, the show's co-host, was in the middle of explaining that "middle class entitlements...are going to bankrupt this country," when Mika chimed in with her own two cents:

I just don’t understand why with top earners doing better than ever, why they can’t be a part of this equation. . . . And if you looked at the New York Times yesterday, and you saw the top 30 earners, and how much money they are making all over again, including some of the people who drove us into the ditch – all white men, by the way, just one woman – and I didn’t see any African-Americans – I think we have a problem that we need to address as a society.

She went on to say that the country will have "class warfare on its worse levels" if these top earners do not contribute more. Contribute more how? By taxes, of course. Mike Barnicle, speaking on the show, suggested raising taxes on those who earn $250,000+ a year--and Mika eagerly agreed this is what President Obama should do. (h/t Newsbusters).
