If I understand what Obama just said, he thinks that not wanting taxes to increase is selfish. The video appears to have been cut for length, but it does not seem it was edited to change the meaning. Obama accused McCain and Palin of making a virtue out of selfishness. First, Biden said it was patriotic to pay higher taxes. Now, not wanted to pay higher taxes is selfish. An Obama-Biden term could be a scary time for anyone who is deemed "rich" or people not in the "middle class".
