Could Obama's new tax plan really incite 'class warfare?' John Avlon and Errol Louis discuss

President Obama will unveil a plan today to cut the deficit by $3 trillion over the next decade. A large part of the proposal is expected to be based on raising taxes on Americans making more than $1 million a year.

Yesterday, Senator Lindsay Graham said that the President's tax plan would create "class warfare."

Today on American Morning, CNN contributors John Avlon and Errol Louis respond to this comment and explain the President's proposal. They also discuss their new book, "Deadline Artists: America's Greatest Newspaper Columns," in which they offer a compilation of iconic newspaper columns from legends like Hunter S. Thompson, Art Buchwald and William F. Buckley.
