The rich DO build roads, bridges, and schools
Recently, Obama famously and stupidly lectured business owners and entrepreneurs in America that part of their work lives belonged to the community, the collective, essentially the government. To him, government is responsible for what people accomplish and therefor the government has a right to take as much of it away as it likes for its own purposes.
While it's true that government builds roads, bridges, and schools....where'd the government get the money to do that? By taxing at a very high, punitive rate, the earnings from the labor of the very citizens he says "didn't build that".
They very well did build that, Mr. President.
Sure the government physically builds roads, but it's the free market that pays for it.
