That would depend on what he means. He may not mean it in a socialist sense, but rather in the way that the very rich have paid off politicians to manipulate the tax system so that they pay few taxes, dumping the burden onto the middle class.
If that’s the case, that is reasonable.

I interpreted his comments the same way you did.
...dumping the burden onto the middle class
Really? How did the rich do that?
Care to elaborate on how much of the tax burden falls on the middle-class, versus the burden carried by the rich?
Also, if the rich did pay off politicians, why is it that they're still the targets of politicians, especially the liberal politicians? When it comes to "purchasing" favors from politicians, aren't the poor and middle-class the ones doing the purchasing, since they are the ones getting the most benefits from the government coffers? The poor and middle-class have been voting for the ones who promise them the most freebies and benefits by government. The rich are virtually powerless when it comes to the politicians that get elected, and the democrats prove that by going after the "low information" voters every election cycle.

That is simply veiled leftist BS.
The rich pay a LOT of taxes. We need more rich people, not less. And the richer the better.
