    "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." BHO

    “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money" -- BHO

    After the shellacking, "The primary engine of America's economic success is not government. It's the ingenuity of America's entrepreneurs." - BHO, yes, seriously

    Slim Hussein Shady said all of the above. So what is it?

    Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

    It's simple:
    A) All remarks indicating that some people make too money at the expense of others and need to be punished are genuine.
    B) All remarks indicating support for the idea of capitalism are fakes designed to appear bipartisan and gain popularity.
    Some things are easy.

    Do you think its possible for someone to have enough money?

    If that's a government policy, what happens to those who have made money above what the government considers "enough"?

    Is it a government policy or just an opinion there is a dividing line somewhere between being an ingenious entrepreneurs generating weath and actual greed?

    Yeap he was talking about the person realizing what is enough wealth.

    Now I throughly believe there are people who have so much wealth it harms them as a human being.

    That is not why I would deside to tax them.

    I would deside to tax them because this country has to have revenue to support the needed infrastructure that makes these peoples money make them more money.

    Those who benifit the most from the greasing of commerce by our infrastructure USE this infrastructure much more than most do.

    You see that guy who uses the interstate to go back and forth to his job uses it.

    The guy who owns a couple of companies that recieve goods and ship good in BIG FUCKING TRUCKS uses the infrastructure much more.

    Why so many Americans want these people to get a free ride I will never know.

    The people who claim there is a line want an official policy stating such. So of course those who go over the line will be punished.

    There is no free ride. The company with the big trucks in your example pays for the use of the roads in enormous taxes on fuel.

    Out of curiosity, can you point me to the member(s) of Congress who have sponsored such a bill(all sponsors and cosponsors please)?
