Obama believes in “redistribution”
September 19, 2012
Once again, Barack Obama finds himself on the defensive after previously unseen footage exposes his liberal worldview.
At issue is audio of a 1998 speech, during which Barack Obama declared “I actually believe in redistribution.” This telling admission helps explain why his administration has pushed for massive new taxes on American job creators, eliminated work requirements for welfare, and disparaged small business owners by claiming that they didn’t build their businesses, among other things.
This is not the first time Obama has come under fire after revealing audio has been uncovered. In fact, four years ago, Claire McCaskill defended similar comments by Barack Obama and flatly denied that he was considering redistribution of wealth (MSNBC’s Morning Joe, October 27, 2008).
And earlier this year, his campaign was widely panned for releasing ‘The Life of Julia,’ the story of a fictional woman who was entirely dependent on government throughout her entire life.
“Instead of creating opportunity for every American, Barack Obama, by his own admission, would prefer to punish success, redistribute wealth, and foster government dependency,” said Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party. “Obama’s declaration that he ‘actually believe[s] in redistribution’ helps explain why he is so intent on running a campaign based on fear and division—attacking those who have been successful instead of focusing on jobs and opportunity for the middle class.”
