Marxism Makes A Come Back: Obama Admits He Wants To Redistribute Wealth

A  plumber asks Obama what he’s going to do to help the economy out.  Obama  responds by saying he’s going to give people like him money that other people worked hard to earn.

Re-Distribution of wealth.  Buying of votes.  That my friends is how Democrats play this game.

From Flopping Aces:

One man in particular questioned Obama’s tax plan, telling him that he is about to buy a company that makes more than $250,000 a year.

“Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn’t it?” the man asked.

Obama responded by telling the voter that his business would get a 50% tax credit for health care, but that his taxes will go up from 36% to 39%.

“I want to give all these folks who are bus drivers, teachers, auto workers who make less, I want to give them a tax cut,” Obama explained.

The man wasn’t convinced, telling Obama that he has been a plumber for 15 years and doesn’t believe that he should be taxed more.

After explaining that the tax rate would be the same as under Bill Clinton and that 95% of Americans make less than $250,000, Obama made one last pitch to the voter.

“I’m gonna cut taxes a little bit more for the folks who are most in need and for the 5% of the folks who are doing very well – even though they’ve been working hard and I appreciate that – I just want to make sure they’re paying a little bit more in order to pay for those other tax cuts,” Obama said.

It’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too.

I don’t care how much lipstick you put on that pig, it’s still a pig and it stinks!  You get hosed under Obama’s tax plan for being successful.  Why even work hard anymore?  Just be like all the other losers that smoke crack, have a bajillion babies out of wedlock, and drop out of school.  But alas, fear not, the Obamessiah will rescue you and pay you for being a loser, afterall it is patriotic according to Joe Biden to pay taxes. (sarc)

  1. In reference to Joe Biden’s comment, would you say that it is MORE patriotic to cheat on taxes through loopholes, or to pay the taxes that that lawmakers have levied? Patriotism means more than waving a flag and wearing a pin, it means action… and the kind of action that leads to people not paying their fair share is very unpatriotic. I’m not saying that all forms of breaking the law are unpatriotic, but tax evasion definitely is. They should all end up like Al Capone.

    Obama isn’t trying to get wealthy people to hand over their bank accounts so he can give handouts to crack dealers (though blogs like yours certainly make it sound like he is). And the “chance at success” that he’s talking about isn’t about handing out sums of cash, it’s about education, health care, infrastructure… all elements that have been ignored by government for decades at the detriment of public good. Are you happy about states selling formerly public highways to private organizations for tolling rights? Are you happy that the US ranks near the bottom of the list of industrialized nations in math and sciences? Hell, if not for immigration, we’d still be using the telegraph. Are you happy that employers are dropping health coverage for employees left and right while the cost of private health care skyrockets? Sure, you could throw your hands up in the air and say “laissez faire” and pretend nothing can be done (because “free markets” are perfect and never have problems), all at the same time decrying the people who are actively trying to improve the country (yes, even for you). But what does that make you? A coward? A hypocrite? Maybe worse. You know, the truth is that free market theory works. But self-regulation works in two ways: It either stimulates the people to organize and establish checks and balances (unions, governments, etc), OR it causes a large division in wealth in a society, which leads to poverty and oppression for the majority (often considered “healthy” by subscribers of voodoo economics). It seems you’ve picked which you would choose if it was your hand on the brush.
