The Case for Income Redistribution…

…by President Obama. I don’t know why I am shocked at anything that comes out of the mouth of Barry Soetoro, a man Alan Keyes calls “a radical communist” and “an abomination.” Speaking in Denver recently, President Obama said: “I don’t think a working mom in Denver should have to wait to get a mammogram because money’s tight.”

What he is saying, of course, is that someone else should pay for her mammogram if she can’t afford it. Income should be redistributed from those who have it to those who don’t. Why? Because that’s what he thinks.

But what if money is tight and I can’t afford gas to get to work? Should someone else pay for it? What if money is tight and I can’t get Christmas gifts for my kids? Should someone else pay for them? What if money is tight and I can’t afford new shoes? Should someone else pay for them? Hey, if money is tight and I can’t afford a new 50-inch TV, is there some government program that will help me pay for it? It wouldn’t surprise me.

And what if money is tight and I can’t pay the taxes on my home? Will Obama pay the taxes so I don’t get thrown out of my home that I supposedly own?
