Skip to comments.Obama In His Own Words: “Tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it”
Posted on 10/19/2008 1:28:10 PM PDT by ari-freedom
Buried in that 8,000 (!) word NYT magazine article about Obamas economic plan that I mentioned yesterday, is this bit flagged by Geraghty at Campaign Spot:
If you talk to Warren [Buffet], hell tell you his preference is not to meddle in the economy at all let the market work, however way its going to work, and then just tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it, Obama said. That way youre not impeding efficiency, and youre achieving equity on the back end. He continued by saying that he thought there was some merit in Buffetts argument.
To which, Geraghty responds: Isnt it reassuring to have a presidential candidate saying he sees some merit in taxing the heck out of something? Indeed.

Man, that must make a HUGE or LONG add for the McCain/Palin campaign!!!
Wake up America.
Unless there is some video or audio does this admission really help much. The media will ignore it. He is a socialist, we’ve known that for quite some time but it would be helpful if there were more video and audio of his policies of redistribution
Buffet = Communist exploiting the Capitalist system
BTW Senator Zero just asked a woman who heckled him how he could be a socialist when he was endorsed by Warren Buffet. That statement by Buffet says it all.
They won't be hurt by the next “Great Society” boondoggle.
You, me and Joe the Plumber — they care not a whit about our chances.
In fact they'd just as soon see us mired in the helpless underclass.
“Obama In His Own Words: Tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it”
EyeGuy in his own words (to the Marxist Obama): “Atlas Shrugged”
this is in response to that. warren doesn’t help his case.
Communists of the World ...Unite! You have power to gain and a new Dark Age to introduce to civilization!
yes there was an article in the WSJ how the vast majority of super rich support obama.
Achieving equity on the backside.
It just reminds me of Animal House.
Thank you sir I’ll have another!
I don’t get the logic, so you tax the heck out of people “on the back end”? and it won’t hurt efficeincy?????
What does he mean, since he’s taking their money AFTER they make it that it won’t make a difference??? So efficiency will only be hurt if you tax people BEFORE they make their money. So you take their money AFTER, what happens to their efficency the NEXT TIME they think about expanding, etc.
I’m confused, can someone try and make sense of this Obama Word Salad??
New McCain ad?
Let the old media ignore it. Of course they will. If you expect the old media to help people learn the truth, you’ll be one miserable person.
“and then just tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it”
words? just words?....;)
Thanks for the reminder.
