My friend, Both Parties believe in Redistribution.
The only Difference is in which Direction.
GOP = Money heads North, Rich get Richer
Dems = Money heads South, Poor receive aid
Dems don't help the poor, they make the poor dependent of government...
Obama himself claimed that the private property of company owners is not really theirs... somebody else helped them... As in, the garbage person, and everyone else who has worked in such building/company, even though they didn't pay ONE PENNY to build that company are also owners of that company... That is called socialism...
BTW, despite the lies from the NEW socialists, under socialism the state OWNS EVERYTHING, and claims to do so "for the people"...

Seriously, this tactic is getting old.

Inflation is a form of redistribution. As money ends up in the hands of people who can hold on to it, unless we wait for the economy to go so sour untill the very rich are the only spenders left, watching consumption reach zero until those who have the money spent enough so that the economy can pick up again, money needs to be infused through the printing press and that creates inflation. Of course there has been a break on it lately and so growth stutters.
Plus Mitt shoots himself in the foot daily,
that little Obama blurb is 14 years old.
FOX had to dust off that videotape, and then find a VCR.
The shills will be exhausted by November.
The audio demonstrates the context of that remark and reveals other far-left positions that Obama held as a state senator.
Those positions encompass issues as wide-ranging as gun control, universal health care and welfare reform. Obama also said he viewed welfare recipients and “the working poor” as “a majority coalition” that could be mobilized to help advance progressive policies and elect their champions.
“What I think will re-engage people in politics is if we’re doing significant, serious policy work around what I will label the ‘working poor,’” he said, “although my definition of the working poor is not simply folks making minimum wage, but it’s also families of four who are making $30,000 a year.”
“They are struggling. And to the extent that we are doing research figuring out what kinds of government action would successfully make their lives better, we are then putting together a potential majority coalition to move those agendas forward.”
