Show me the money

It's called Redistribution of Wealth, and it's something the Democrats have always tried to do. They won't call it that. Biden, in the VP debate, called it "fairness." But it's not really. They're just playing semantics with your money.

Here's the idea:

Obama says everyone in the country who makes less than $250,000 will get a tax break. Everything I've read says it will actually be in the form of a check, like a rebate check. Okay, checks from the government are good (as long as they don't bounce.)

The problem is that about 40% of Americans don't pay taxes, because they don't make enough to be taxed. So you'd think those people obviously would not be included when you go giving rebate checks to taxpayers, right? Wrong!

Obama's plan would give non-taxpayers rebate checks also. That means they'd be getting money back for something they didn't pay out for to begin with. So basically, taxpayers would be giving hand-outs to non-taxpayers.

Biden calls it "fairness." I call it stealing.
