Maybe you need to realized the very people who are voting for income redistribution are wealthy. Do you see Obama giving away the proceeds of his book? He has mad several million? Do you see those bastions to the democratic party, who are constantly voting for entitlements that you pay for, giving away their fortune? Income redistribution is done by taxing my hard earned dollars and giving to people who have never worked a day in their lives. Don't talk to me about my generation dying off, so there can be progress. Instead, tell these lazy bums who expect us to support them to get off their butts and get a job!
AS we have become aware recently the BILLIONAIRES could give a flying crap about AMERICA. YET it seems you are still defending this "logic". I still believe that lowering the rich tax code more---- and more------ and more--------- and more---------- Is absolutely ridiculous.
OBAMA is for shifting the tax code back to a point that favors the middle class... MANY MORE Americans would benefit from this move... BUSINESSES would absorb the "tax" money the middle class spends at a much faster rate then giving it to MR BUFFET $457,000,000,000.00...
MORE money, being spent at a faster rate, by more people goes WHERE???
DO you forget that EISENHOWER R taxed the top 1% at 90%....
Hell CARTER left office with the lowest national debt in history.
REGAN and BUSH JR hold the record for the largest debts incurred, in office, in HISTORY.
BUSH JR has increased spending more than any other president in history.
ON to ENTITLEMENTS,,, PSSH!
The most amusing thing is that you used the term "redistribution of wealth."
WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS BAILOUT IS????
Further more, redistribution of wealth is giving a billionaire a 3.6% line of credit and then charging a person who makes $20,000 a year 18% for the same loan...
CHRIST himself went after the money lenders.
MY generation is liberal - HELL --the kids TEN years younger than myself, make me look like DAVID DUKE.
THIS conservative ideology has failed once again.
THE crusty old adage of trickle down corprofascim is dying... BELIEVE THAT!
