The Depth of Obama's Socialist Redistribution of WealthTopics: Political News and commentaries
Anyone who's seen thise clip of the plumber asking Senator Obama about his tax plan can't help but find his remarks very troubling and Marxist, in what is clearly a socialist, Alinsky-like agenda for wealth redistribution:
"It's not that I want to punish your success," Obama explained. "I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success too. 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."As Brian Simpson at TMR notes, this type of a comment reveals Obama for the socialist that he truly is, and to gain an understanding on just how much the wealth is being spread around, take a gander at this chart from an analysis conducted by the Tax Foundation:
Simpson goes on to point out that Senator Obama's plan puts a gun at the heads of those earning over $500,000 and forces them to simply hand their earnings to those who have not earned it. Indeed, there is something very troubling about such a concept, and as Simpson also notes, if this weren't the goverment forcing those redistributions we would be filing extortion charges against the person(s) holding the gun.
The Tax Foundation (via TMR) also points out one other very interesting piece of information:
It is interesting to point out that while Obama talks about how his plan would benefit the middle-class, the plan delivers the largest benefits to two groups outside of the middle - households earning less than $30,000 and households earning between $100,000 and $200,000. Each of these groups would receive more than $40 billion in benefits, roughly 50 percent more than any group in the statistical middle.In other words, just like Simpson says, Obama's plan would take money from "the ultra high income group and distribute the majority of the benefits to those not even in the middle class that he pretends to care about so much."
