As Obamacare flops, BHO goes for class warfare

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.

    Obama is and always has been committed to the imposition of Marxist principles of ending capitalism and instituting socialism in its place. He was taught these concepts from an early age by his leftist grandparents who raised him and their good friend Frank Marshall Davis, a dedicated member of the Communist Party, who mentored Obama throughout his impressionable years.

    This Breitbart article provides more background on Obama and his closest advisers such as David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett and their links to the Communist Party:

    Obama is such a hypocrite! He and his family routinely take expensive vacations, serve $100 a lb. Wagu beef (2009 prices)and they deny themselves nothing during the worst economy since the Great Depression.

    How dare he tell those who have achieved success that they should lower their standards to the level of those who disdained education, often drugged and drank themselves into oblivion, and have made destructive life choices? Being raised poor doesn’t mean there is no hope for a future. This is America with scholarships and numerous opportunities for those who desire to work, apply themselves and get ahead. I’ve witnessed that transition in my own family. Governement is NOT the answer. Self reliance is.

      Your points are well taken, Al. Opportunity exists for those who choose to avail themselves of it….along with hard work and a sense of dtermination. One of the main differences between liberals and conservatives is that liberals prefer reliance on government for the things conservatives choose to rely upon themselves to attain.

    I guess every now and then even we are entitled to a bone. “Income inequality” is front and center today as fast food workers in 100 cities strike for a $15 hourly wage, being fueled by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The massive anti-immigration enforcement/pro-amnesty lobby (which includes the verminous Arizona C.O.C. lobbyists that smothered legislative action in March 2011) has partnered with the SEIU and other union goons to push their cheap labor-cheap sales agenda.

    Now the devil has come home. When you think of “fast food”, your next thought likely would be McDonalds. I wonder how dear old Marion “Mac” Magruder’s day is going on this most deserving occasion? Right out of their launch gate, SRAZ had his number:
