In Obama’s interview by Bret Baier (Fox News) yesterday, Obama made this statement:
“Yes, it’s one-sixth of the economy, but we’re not transforming one-sixth of the economy all in one fell swoop. “ – emphasis mine.
The way he said this implies to me at least that Obama is indeed thinking in terms of ’transforming the economy’. Obama openly favors large-scale redistribution of wealth. Everything he’s done since he’s been in office has been to that end – using the financial crisis as a lever.
The big problem with redistribution of wealth is that if you are getting something for nothing, somebody, somewhere is getting nothing for something. The common term for this is ‘stealing’.
Looks to me like Obama is indeed trying to transform one-sixth of the economy; and in one fell swoop, too.
