Obama: 'Teachers are so grossly underpaid in this country' that those in San Francisco 'have no place to live'

President Obama doesn't enjoy paying his big tax bills and he always pays "the max" rate, he says. But he also learned to appreciate what his taxes do, thanks to a career in politics and eight years as President No. 44. Lately he's been talking to companies trying to get them to understand this point of view.

Now, Rep. Ken Calvert, R-Corona ...
