Oh jeez... blah blah blah... fair share blah blah blah. Obama is on the stump again complaining that the economy will only grow if we let him pick someone else's pocket ...again.
Here's the facts. When it comes to him raising taxes only on the rich, what he's really saying is that you should let the rich guys in Washington take the money from the rich guys in the private sector because the rich guys in Washington know better what to do with it. The guys in Washington have run up Trillions in debts and have walked our country to the brink of insolvency, while the guys in the private sector have struggled to keep their businesses afloat in the face of the greatest regulatory and tax onslaught in American history. So naturally Obama thinks you should let the monstrous F-ups in Washington have EVEN MORE MONEY!!!!
This is rank stupidity on a stick. All the rest - the "tax cuts for the wealthy" lingo, the "fair share" lingo, even the new "top down economics" blurb (which in literal terms is what he's actually proposing) all of it. It's all just salesmanship. He's hoping that you are dumb enough to buy into this story, and give in to your rage and anger and envy that someone else has more than you. And after giving in to your envy, to 'trust' him to fix it for you. But he can't. We know he can't, or he'd have done it already.
I swear to god, I can barely stand to listen to him anymore. The same broken record for 3.5 years.... blah blah blah. But speaking as someone who's job it (partly) is to forecast the outcome of what he's proposing I can only say ... he's trying awfully hard to be the worst president in American history.
