This bit of rhetoric doesn't really mean anything to me. You balance a budget by reducing spending and/or raising taxes. Currently, the rich pay the lion's share of the taxes collected in this country. It doesn't really mean anything to say that the budget is being balanced on the backs of the middle class. It's just rhetoric - not anything based on actual fact.
