It is impossible not to redistribute when you tax. It is inherit in taxation. Your inability to think through things like this is one reason Republicans loat the election.....for the PResidency, the Senate and the House.<quoted text>
what evidence do you have that the role of the federal government is to redistribute? where in the constitution do you find that?
How much redistribution do you think is sufficient, btw? Until everyone has exactly the same stuff (except the enlightened rulers like Obama, Cuomo, Schumer, etc.)?
And how, in your analysis, will resdistribution create greater economic growth?
Now that the people have spoken, and President Axelrod's cynical strategy of class- and racial-warfare have again proven effective, we can expect high unemployment to continue, taxes to skyrocket, and the debt to rise to over $20 trillion. Obama will have doubled the national debt in only 8 years. It took over 200 years to take it to $10 billion, and the Stooge will double it in 8. Now that's "change you can believe in."
BTW: How do you think that $20 trillion should be redistributed? Or should the "rich" just pay it?
America is in real trouble. We can just blame it all on Bush.
Rediostribution should occur until the economy is healthy and vibrant with lots of creativity and the middle class is large and living well again.
Look at my second sentence. An economy based on consumption works best when people spend money. The middle class is largely out of money....those that still have jobs that is. Redistribution, preferably through higher wages and more jobs would put money in the hands of the middle class where it will be spent.
How is it class warfare to talk of the need to redistribute wealth and you think it is not class warfare to support policies which allow wealth to accumulate at the top and not encourage redistribution?
