Obama’s Mondale Moment

McCain wants to change DC, Obama wants to change America!

It is established history that Senator Mondale lost his election (with Geraldine Ferraro as VP) to Ronald Reagan in the debate where he let slip his intentions to raise taxes. At that time the disaster of the Carter years on the economy was still fresh in the memories of the people, as were the results of Reagan’s tax cuts on righting the economy.

This weekend Senator Obama had his Mondale moment when he told a small business owner he was going to ‘spread the wealth’ by raising taxes. Here is the key quote, with the video of Obama’s honest comments following:

“Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn’t it?” the plumber asked, complaining that he was being taxed “more and more for fulfilling the American dream.”

“It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance for success too,” Obama responded. “My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody … I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Here’s the problem with Obama’s naive tax policy. By taxing small businesses, which employ a majority of the people and create the vast majority of new jobs, Obama is trading the ability of a person to pay a plumber verses that person having a job. Which is more important? You want to pay a plumbing bill once or have a job all year long?

Classic liberal tripe, they want the government to hand out fish to feed the masses once in a while, versus allowing the people to have a job so they can feed themselves.
