Skip to comments.OBAMA to self-employed plumber: "I'm going to 'spread the wealth around'!"

I've said repeatedly that Obama lies as easily as he breathes. More proof of this has been self-evident in his "giving 95% of voters a tax-cut." (Only I guess its not as self-evident as I would like it to be - because liberals are stupid and do not look at facts when their Messiah speaks.)
But here's the thing. The bottom roughly 37% of citizens do not pay federal taxes. So that means that under his plan only 58% will get a "tax-cut". Those bottom 37%ers will be getting PURE WELFARE. Stolen directly from the small business owners of America (87% of which fall in the top 5%.)
See if you are self-employed, and you run a business it is likely you fall into the top 5%. But that doesn't make you wealthy - not by a long shot.
But the bottom 37% that do not pay taxes would receive a check with monies in it taken directly from the small businesses.
But a word about the top 5% as well...
Small businesses create the overwhelming majority of new jobs. Taxing them additionally (in most cases raising their tax rate to over 40% according to Obama's plan) will cause them to RAISE PRICES and LAY OFF WORKERS. Thusly goods and services become MORE expensive for that bottom 95%.
Not a big deal to the lowest 37% because they have that new free money that grew on trees. But it directly squeezes the middle class into sacrificial territory.
In other words - Barack Obama is seeking to directly PUNISH the middle class by his bait and switch tax welfare program.
Which is why a self-employed plumber like this guy needed to ask the candidate first hand, "Why you punishing me for working hard?" To which the communist candidate responds in as marxian a tone as possible, "I'm trying to spread the wealth around..."

The left is definitely becoming bolder.
And your post is one of several already posted...
What an ad this will make.
What an ad!
Couple it with that inane comment about other countries not being ok with where we put the thermostat and what we drive and you have a helluva an ad.
Say goodbye to any incentive to produce.
If this socialist trash gets elected to the presidency, I will have no faith left for our country.
The candidacy of Hussein is a referendum on Socialism.
Don’t count on! Worse part is that this clown will have both houses and HE WILL DO IT! God have mercy! PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEE LORD!
Right. Just another example of a liberal’s generosity. They’re generous with other people’s money.
Plus he told the plumber, “I just want to help the people behind you be a success too!” and “I think its better when you spread that wealth around”.
Any of you know of unfair barriers to hard working people becoming plumbers? Obama is full of kooky ideas like this. The plumber’s crime is being successful, and Obama plans to take his money and give it to others who do not work as hard or as well.
Frightening. Obama is a total jackass radical.
Oh and say goodbye to the offshore drilling that 80% of Americans want.
Translation: I’m going to take the hard earned money you WORKED for and give it to those that didn’t. Welcome to the Obamanation. Reparations and wealth re-distribution, and punishment for success.
I am hoping the McCain camp seizes on this opportunity for a great ad using Obama HIMSELF in the ad.
Seems nice, the girls are pretty, gotta Luv the weather and the 1911 Colt was practically born there, but big ole fat China is sittin over there on the left lickin its chops.
Still can’t be posted enuff!
Amen. Also, I'd love to see him just quote part of the IBD editorial "Socialist Tsunami" explaining exactly what 0bama's "tax plan" REALLY means. If he did these 2 things, he'd win by a landslide.
The irony of Obama preaching socialist economics to a self-employed plumber astounds me.
The trouble is that about half of those voting will believe this cr@p nonsense
. They don’t seem to be capable of thinking beyond grabbing the golden goose by the neck, and choking it to death.
I don't know about presently, but 35 years ago in Kansas City, generally only the sons or nephews of plumbers could get into the apprentice program of the union, which was about the only way one could be a plumber in the area at the time.
So we had a hereditary plumber caste.
