I wanted thank everyone in advance.
In November, as we help to elect Obama to President....his "shift the wealth around" tax plan will help me in many fantastic ways...I may be able to finally get that pontoon boat I've wanted. I might be able to get that cabin in New Hampshire like I dreamed. Heck, I'm even be able to buy a septic tank business down in Ripley.
So when that plumber stood there...grasping this entire tax plan...naturally, he wanted to ask Senator Obama personally: “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more. Isn’t it?"
There was a moment of hesitation and then Senator Obama responded: “It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
The jest of this Obama plan....is that its absolutely great that some folks are working real hard and being successful....we're going to take a "little" bit of your wealth and spread it with everybody (namely me).
I realize you might be a bit irked....thinking that I'm not entitled to your money....but you have to realize....if you really worked extra hard and did super-well...and I didn't.....I should be sharing in your money. If it doesn't make sense....you may need five or six shots of cheap booze to help you understand my situation....I deserve your money.
For this reason, I'm hoping that you will all help in getting Senator Obama elected....so I can collect big-time on my big paycheck.
Incidentally....for those who might wonder...was it smart for Senator Obama to explain this to a plumber, farmer, trucker, carpenter, bricklayer, or mechanic? The natural comeback here is that he only wants to go after the top two percent of wage-earners.
The amusing thing is that the folks who think they might be in this category...will pay off some congressmen....and get tax exemptions. So it'll be the next three percent that make up for those guys who got exempted. Oh, but they paid off off some congressmen too....so it'll be the next four percent of folks. But, they also paid off some congressmen....so they got exempted. So we move on. Eventually, we get down to the folks who make $40k a year....and they will help to contribute to this "spread the wealth around". Yep...the middle-class...helping like they always do.
I'm thinking it really wasn't that smart....especially with one debate left. McCain will stand there....talking to the plumbers of America and asking them how they feel about sharing their wealth. They won't be happy....and I think this idea probably cost Obama 500,000 votes across the US.
