Robin Hood: Men in Tights - White Men Can't Jump

IT'S A LEAK! Barack Obama tells Ohio plumber Joe Wurzelbacher he intends to "spread the wealth around."

WASHINGTON - You won't find it in his campaign ads, but Barack Obama let slip his plans to become a modern-day Robin Hood in the White House, confiscating money from the rich to give to the poor. [ROBAMAHOOD!!]
Conservatives yesterday ripped Obama after he was caught on video telling an Ohio plumber that he intends to take the profits of small-business owners and "spread the wealth around" to those with lesser incomes.

The fracas over Obama's tax plan broke out Sunday outside Toledo when Joe Wurzelbacher approached the candidate.

Wurzelbacher said he planned to become the owner of a small plumbing business that will take in more than the $250,000 amount at which Obama plans to begin raising tax rates.

"Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?" the blue-collar worker asked.

After Obama responded that it would, Wurzelbacher continued: "I've worked hard . . . I work 10 to 12 hours a day and I'm buying this company and I'm going to continue working that way. I'm getting taxed more and more while fulfilling the American Dream."

"It's not that I want to punish your success," Obama told him. "I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too.

Then, Obama explained his trickle-up theory of economics.

"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."

Critics said Obama let the cat out of the bag.

"It's clear that his main goal is redistribution of wealth, not growth," said Andy Roth with the anti-tax group Club for Growth. "He's perfectly happy to destroy wealth as long as he can redistribute it."

Obama has been meticulous, Roth said, to conceal the "socialistic" nature of his tax plans. "But every once in a while, he lets it slip," he said.

Republican candidate John McCain yesterday charged that Obama's comment was telling.

"This explains how Senator Obama can promise an income-tax cut for millions who aren't even paying income taxes right now," he said in Pennsylvania.

"My plan isn't intended to force small businesses to cut jobs to pay higher taxes so we can 'spread the wealth around.' My plan is intended to create jobs and increase the wealth of all Americans."

Meanwhile, a New York Times/CBS poll last night showed Obama moving into a commanding 53-39 percent lead.



An unscripted moment with an Ohio plumber produced a startling confession from Barack Obama Sunday: The Democrat's "middle-class tax cut" is in fact a scheme to "spread the wealth around."

Obama dropped the mask long enough to tell the truth to Toledo plumber Joe Wurzelbacher - who had asked the Democratic nominee why he wanted to jack up his taxes just for "fulfilling the American dream."

"I'm getting ready to buy a company that makes $250,000 to $280,000 a year," Wurzelbacher had told Obama. "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?"

"It's not that I want to punish your success," Obama replied. "I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too . . . When you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

At last! The truth outs!

Obama's plan isn't about sinking hooks into Wall Street CEOs and other fat cats, as he usually says. Fact is, there's not enough of them to raise the cash necessary to finance his other grand plans.

No, to do that, he'll have to go after ambitious working-class guys like Wurzelbacher - who's been a plumber for 15 years and is looking to better himself and his family while just maybe creating a few jobs.

The American Dream?

Wurzelbacher personifies it - but Barack Obama seems determined to tax it to death and be done with it, period.

That's been the case all along, of course. What's different is that the Democrat finally said so.
Heretofore, [LIKE ROBIN HOOD] Obama has sought to paint himself as a tax-cutter - claiming he'll slash taxes for 95 percent of Americans. [ROBAMAHOOD]

As we noted yesterday, that's a flat-out lie - not least because nearly half of all tax filers pay no income tax at all. So how can he "cut" their taxes if they don't pay any to begin with?

Answer: tax "credits."

To wit, in part:

* A $1,000 "make work pay" credit.
* A $4,000 college-tuition credit.
* A $6,000 child-care credit.
* A $1,100 bump in the earned-income tax credit.

These aren't to be income-tax deductions - which would be worthless to those who pay no income taxes.

These are to be checks from Washington - with the subsidies expected to grow to more than $1 trillion in 10 years.

That's a massive transfer of wealth.

How does Obama justify it?

"Fairness," he says.

But that's an absurdly radical view of what's "fair."

Remember, Obama's tax hikes target folks who already bear the brunt of the burden: The top 20 percent of earners already pay 69 percent of all federal taxes - and 88 percent of income taxes.

(Contrast that with John McCain's call yesterday for real tax cuts - halving the capital-gains levy, scrapping taxes on unemployment benefits altogether - designed to prime the economic pump.)

Monday, Obama promised a tax policy that would restore "a sense of fairness and balance that will give every American a fair shot at the American dream."

But just a day before, he told Joe Wurzelbacher the truth: No American dream for you, buddy!
Nor anybody else, it seems.


To Play the Role of Robin Hood is Not Correct

Apparently, the Brazilian Government of President Lula is sensitive about being portrayed as a modern day Robin Hood. Its Ministry of Foreign Relations posted the text of the article noted above on its website. This posting is accessible at: ;

English Translation:

Reporter - Daily Election of National Notice - 22/Abril/2007
Zero Hour
Subject: Economy
Heading: 1b “To play role of Robin Hood is not correct”
Date: 16/04/2007

Interview: Lawrence Kogan, president of the Institute for the Commerce, Standardization and Sustainable Development of U.S.A.

Zero Hour - How the formal complaint of the United States against done China last week,
that it involves intellectual questions of law, must affect the treatment of the subject in
the world?

Lawrence Kogan - the question taken to the World-wide Organization of Comércio (OMC)
is in part politics and legal part. Still it is in the first phase. But it has the effect to make
China to perceive as this question is important. Perhaps in the case of the fake and the
piracy, the Chinese government is making of account that it does not see. These activities
represent job for many people, but this does not become them correct.

ZH - How it is possible to deal with justice the copyright in rich and poor countries, since
the chances in the area are very different?

Kogan - the property right precedes the question of the copyright. If it will not have
protection, the people will not have interest in developing rights in this area. The poor
persons have ideas, but they do not know as to unlock this knowledge and to place it in
the market - they do not have legal mechanisms and contacts in the universe of the
businesses. Thus, they do not perceive the benefits.

ZH - How it evaluates you the initiative of Brazil to make agreements to manufacture
remedies, especially anti-AIDS?

Kogan - In U.S.A. and the law of the OMC, it is established that, when a government
takes a patent on behalf of the public interest, it has to pay indemnity. Brazil threatened
to break the licenses, and this reduced the value of the products. This is not just. It is
understandable that the governments want accessible prices, the American law also
foresees the generic ones, but after a period of three the six years. Brazil did not respect
this period. All we understand that it is important to guarantee access for the people, but to play role of Robin Hood is not the certain way.
