During his press conference today, President Obama said the following, which reveals exactly what he thinks of your income and the government’s right to it:
“I will not accept a deal in which I am asked to do nothing, in fact, I’m able to keep hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income that I don’t need…”
So to translate – the government decides how much you “should” make, what you “need” from the money you earn, and what is “additional.” All the rest is for them to keep or re-distribute as they see fit.
If anyone ever had any doubt that this man believes in the redistribution of wealth, confiscatory government, or both (i.e. moderates who voted for him thinking he was a moderate), this statement should pretty much clear that misconception right up. You can also tell he hasn’t had a real job in a long, long time (if ever).
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE – Someone who has the eye of Mr. Boehner, the RNC, Citizens United, Eric Erikson, or anyone with with more juice than me (which is pretty much anyone) PLEASE pass this along. It is TV Gold!
