If anyone doubted that this administration was leaning toward socialism, all one has to do is look at what he said today in a speech to the Chamber of Commerce.
He said, "If we're fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports, the benefits cannot just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They have to be shared by American workers, who need to know that opening markets will lift their standard of living as well as your bottom line,"
First of all, I am a working man. I want to do well. But, a poor man never gave me a job.
During speeches like this, one main point is always left out. The fact that those who are hiring are taking risks. And no one from the government should be in the business of telling anyone how to run their company unless they are getting federal help.
It makes many happy to find a boogie-man and want to see those who are better off take it on the chin.
But, if you want to get rich, make sure you make out like a bandit when business is good- own your own business.
But, you also have to know that when the economy tanks, it's the so-called rich person or business owner who takes the brunt of the storm.
That realistic point is always left out when those jealous of others who have achieved are trying to justify where they are in life.
For those who want to share the profits when things are good, be willing to take a cut when things are bad.
It got real quiet in here.
