Achievement deserves punishment of disrepute, ever-increasing taxes, as Obama touts Marxist economic “equality”
Going for any distraction from his disastrous healthcare scheme — which costs more and delivers less — Barack Obama has jumped on the class warfare train. Now he alleges “increasing income inequality is more pronounced in the United States than other countries.”
As he enters the sixth year of his presidency, with double the number of people on food stamps, Obama claims income inequality is “the defining challenge of our time.” Enrollment in the food stamp program has skyrocketed by 70 percent in the years since Barack Obama first took office, with over 47 million now accessing the subsidies.
Obama’s Marxist redistribution* of wealth message is nothing new, as this linked 1998 statement demonstrates. It continues to resonate with the audience at the hard-left Center for American Progress where he gave his speech on Tuesday.
“Income inequality has jeopardized the nation’s middle class,” he declared, adding that he is urging Washington to take steps to ensure that the economy benefits everyone.
There may be hope. Young Americans, who overwhelmingly supported Obama, are turning against him and his signature health care law, according to a new survey of millennials — people between the ages of 18 and 29. National Journal reports the startling findings of Harvard University’s Institute of Politics: A majority of Americans under age 25 — the youngest millennials — would favor throwing Obama out of office.
Obama continues to be plagued by what is being called a “trust problem,” as revealed by these two Washington Post charts.
These blatant lies might have something to do with his plummeting numbers.
