SOUND OFF: Can Obama’s ‘Redistribution of Wealth’ Fix The Economy Despite Critisism Its Socialsim?
Does Obama’s equation really equal Marx?
Hoping to further distance himself from the poorly articulated 47% comments, Mitt Romney’s campaign has redirected the conversation to redistribution. In an attempt to paint President Obama as Socialist, the Romney camp went digging in the crates to exhume this 1998 tape depicting a very long-accepted US government policy as Marxist. The President, then and now wants to ensure “at least at a certain level, that everybody has a shot.” Does that mean the President is in favor of the radical seizure of wealth?
“Mitt Romney and I are not running to redistribute the wealth,” Paul Ryan said this week during a campaign stop in Virginia. “Mitt Romney and I are running to help Americans create wealth.”
Now I know my comments are biased and I apologize but regardless the economy is broken. Obama’s plan to force, yes force, the wealthy to contribute a little more is valid. I’m of the opinion that this philosophy has been widely accepted by American government for forever. Its part of the ideal that is capitalism. No one is saying the rich should show up at the mission and start handing out dollar bills but whether its hiring incentive or tax, the money must be spent by those who have more of it. Isn’t that a basic mathmatical equation? Maybe I’m confused. SOUND OFF: Can Obama’s “Redistribution Of Wealth” be the answer to the U.S. Economy’s woes despite the Republican criticism that its Socialist?
