Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her Monday evening keynote speech at a Clinton Global Initiative event to push for a new global initiative: a tax on the worlds rich.
One of the issues that I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner, especially from the elites in every country, Clinton said at the annual meeting of her husbands global public policy organization.
It is a fact that around the world the elites of every country are making money, Clinton continued. There are rich people everywhere. And yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries.
Citing the need for public schools and public hospitals, Clinton said elites do not sufficiently invest in the public sector and restrict their countries development.
And so it means, for leaders, telling powerful people things they dont want to hear, Clinton added, to laughter and applause.
Although left unmentioned in Clintons speech, President Barack Obama has been actively calling during his re-election campaign for the nations richest to pay more taxes.
how bout Hillare turn over her millions ...all they ever want is other peoples money...never worked a real job
George soros seems to have a few billion he can spare
hey hillary...how about we put a tax on ugly - get your wallet out.
[you’ve got a job] == [you’re “the rich”]
We have millions of leeches in the USA alone that contribute NOTHING to help our country prosper. All they do is suck in money from us that work and then they procreate to make even more welfare cases.
How about getting these parasites off the hillary teat and doing something FOR our country?
Oh, HELL no.
Government officials around the word need the money for better vacations and bigger villas
When the hell are these people EVER going to follow and protect the Constitution?
Is this satire? I had to do a double take.
How about we give them Hillary and call it even.
People don’t work to get rich, just to re-distribute it to the ne’er-do-wells of the world.
This is classic, progressive, class-envy, and that’s all.
If Hildebeast ever gets to be president, it’ll be Obama all over again...maybe worse.
We can throw in Pelosi and Reid,too. To sweeten the pot so to speak. Obama won’t be available until January 21st.
But we can toss him in as well.
I thought for a second it was semi-news/semi-satire...Sure sounds like end times language to me.
LOL she may not have that much money!!!
They are never going to do that. Democrats are not into that sort of thing.
So much for the oath of office....
Obamas Global Tax Proposal Up for Senate Vote

A nice-sounding bill called the Global Poverty Act, sponsored by Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama, is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.
Senator Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has not endorsed either Senator Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. But on Thursday, February 14, he is trying to rush Obamas Global Poverty Act (S.2433) through his committee. The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.
Obama has wanted this for a long time.
Hillary is nothing but a stinking tax-whore. Of course, taxes aren’t meant for her and her ilk.
Hitlery and BJ should be the first to donate their entire wealth to the cause, don’t ya think? Like all good Liberals, they want to steal from everyone else and keep their own money like the Liberal feces in Hollyweird. Welcome to Liberal insanity and duplicity.
