Four Out of Five of Under-30s on Obama's Tax-the-Rich Plan: 'Yes He Should'

millennials support Obama's Tax-the-Rich Plan Even if you find the slew of polls on President Obama's latest tax proposal a little taxing to keep track of, we thought we'd share another. We're just the messenger, OK?

A prominent demographic has weighed in extremely positively on the Buffett Rule, the administration's Warren Buffett-inspired proposal to tax millionaires an extra $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years. According to a new survey, 80% of Americans under the age of 30 strongly support the move. Less than 9% oppose it, and 7% favor a 15 percent flat tax on all businesses and individuals to cut down on loopholes.

More than 5,000 respondents clicked into the Facebook survey, conducted by Our Time, a nonprofit advocacy group for Americans under 30. This youngest voting constituency has the smallest number of millionaires.

"We have to put more into the system to minimize our deficit," said Our Time President Matthew Segal.

America at large apparently also agrees that it's time the rich paid a greater share of what's due to Uncle Sam, though not quite as overwhelmingly. According to a Gallup Poll this week, 70% give the thumbs-up to raising taxes on some corporations, and 66% approved of increasing taxes on individuals earning $200,000 or more annually and families that earned a combined minimum of $250,000.

The Hollywood crowd seems willing to shell out more, too -- at least from a recent small sampling.

Here's the equal-time part: Republicans say the proposal amounts to class warfare and robs wealthy Americans of their job-creating powers.

Now let's take a breath and wait for the next poll.
