In waging this war on inequality, it makes no sense to do a grand bargain on entitlements. What would that solve? It would freeze the status quo in place. But the war on inequality can never rest, can never end. A century from now, liberal scholars will be mining the national income data to find another "wave of rising income inequality" while "more struggle to get by."
How can the president rest in his lifelong struggle, his quest for the Great White Whale of equality, while the tide of inequality continues to rise?
So it makes complete sense that President Obama and his Treasury Secretary Geithner have not proposed a "grand bargain" on entitlements. The president is not interested in doing a deal on entitlements. He just wants more money in taxes to spend on his war on inequality.It may be a humorous political cartoon, but this Branco cartoon over at Legal Insurrection does show Uncle Sam (meaning America as we know it) being pushed off the cliff via BHO's "fundamental transformation" by "taxing the rich," "no spending cuts," and "billions more in stimulus spending" [that didn't work out the last three times tried].
What does it mean when someone keeps doing what doesn't work despite all the evidence that shows it hasn't worked? It means that it's being done purposely!The American Thinker article is good and worth reading. It describes BHO's "war against inequality" and how such a war would never end until those suffering under "inequality" include all but the political elite. "Soft" Communism....anyone? Actually, we know what communism, taken to it's ultimate conclusion inevitably results in. Just look at the gruesome history.
I think that the very first comment under the article link at American Thinker reveals the ultimate truth of the matter:
Remember. We were forewarned!
