The Obamessiah says a mouthful in this simple exchange with a regular American.....
Plumber to Obama: “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more. Isn’t it?”
Obama: “It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
Why is it the government's business to see that wealth gets "spread around", rather than earned, in the first place?
A caller on Rush's show pointed out that Obama revealed, probably unintentionally, what we've always known about liberals. They are all in favor of the American dream, right up until the point that you actually achieve the American dream, then you become the evil, stinking rich they demogogue to their resentful, grubbing, degenerate voting base. To liberal/socialists like Obama, when you realize the American dream, that's the precise point in time when class warfare and the promise of handouts no longer buys your vote and you become useless to them.
The line of democrats is already forming at the IRS to get their hands on your wealth.
