Obama: ' And everybody's getting a fair share," Obama said, before quickly correcting himself and adding. "Everybody's doing a fair share, and everybody's playing by the same rules,"
Pretty close?

'From each according to their abilities' vs 'Everybody's doing a fair share'

'To each according to his needs' vs 'Everybody's getting a fair share'

With an update on the way......
