Apparently The Wealthy Are Unemployed

Writes Trevor Bothwell:

“I love the first paragraph of this Bloomberg story discussing hypersocialist Barack Obama’s plan to tax the “wealthy” to overhaul health care in the U.S.

President Barack Obama wants Congress to consider taxing the wealthy instead of workers to pay for a health-care overhaul, as House Democrats discuss a plan to require health insurance for most Americans.

It truly is remarkable how effortlessly the communists are able to shape their class warfare debates. It’s always “the wealthy” against “the workers,” as if people who don’t wish to rely on the state for their own well-being don’t work for a living. And if “the wealthy” aren’t workers, how in the world did they become wealthy in the first place?

This is not a profound idea. You’d figure some reporter would think to ask someone like the president to explain exactly what more affluent Americans have done to deserve to be robbed so politicians can continue to perpetrate this myth.”
