This past Sunday, Senator Barack Obama was canvassing an Ohio neighborhood, when he was approached by a citizen, a plumber by trade.
"Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?" the plumber asked, complaining that he was being taxed "more and more for fulfilling the American dream."Hear it for yourself with own soon to be astonished ears:
"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 for success too," Obama responded. "My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody ... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." Fox News
That was certainly an Oscar winning performance, much like this one -
Obama says he will drink the milkshake of tradesmen - plumbers, carpenters, electricians, brick layers, and anyone else who has achieved in their lifetime, in order to pay for those who have achieved nothing, not worked, and demand more. It's just not fair, says Obama, that some people are ambitious, work hard, and accumulate wealth and some people are not; the non-achieving lazy bastards should share in the wealth and, by the Almighty, Obama will force the successful (read greedy) to share their wealth by taxing them. Tax the rich till there are no rich no more.
Someone said that Democrats love employees and hate employers. Barack Obama is the living embodiment of that.
