Examples of redistribution: Every government expenditure ever.
Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Who is Bill Hammond? The man is a moron.Or:Examples of redistribution: Every expenditure ever.About as helpful a 'witty' tweet.
colon_pow: Dr Dreidel: colon_pow: sure redistribution occurs as part of the tax system and public services. but "redistribution" for the sake of taking from the wealthy (because they "have enough") and distributing it to others for fairness' sake is a different animal.but of course you already know that.Either you're arguing against progressive taxation (which is something Benjamin Franklin, TJ, Adam Smith, Karl Marx and a whole lot of other philosopher-economists have come up with as the best way to tax fairly and sensibly) or saying "it's not 2+2, it's two PLUS two!" or arguing against all taxation.Any money you send to the government is by definition redistributed - it was "distributed" to you by your employer or stock broker, you "redistribute" it to the Feds (or the state), they spend it on gas for a motor pool car, or the governor's salary, or a tax break for the new Walmart, or TANF, or as insurance on a student or home loan - unless the government sets it on fire.so you're saying that when the president uses the term "redistribution", it's not the same dog-whistle or coded word that it normally is. you're gonna stretch it and spin it and contort it. is that what your handlers instructed you to do?

Cletus C.: His redistribution rhetoric remains disturbing.
The Dreaded Rear Admiral: Cletus C.: His redistribution rhetoric remains disturbing.You're probably not cut out for living in civilization then.
Cletus C.: OneTimed: Cletus C.: His redistribution rhetoric remains disturbing.So you think it's better than the uber wealthy horde trillions (HORDE, not spend) and keep it out of the economy?It's not just unethical, it's painfully stupid.Confiscating wealth because you don't like what's being done with launches you down a buttery slope.
Brandyelf: Is anyone actually surprised by this? It was a naked attempt to say, "Look! Their guy says bad things, too!" It failed, and this is just the icing on the cake.
