Alan Colmes: “Isn’t Tax Breaks for the Rich Redistribution of Wealth?” (Video)

Unreal. Liberals truly believe that your income is their spending money.

Here’s more proof:
Yesterday, a video was released from a 1998 Obama speech where the then state senator said, I believe in redistribution of wealth.

Today, Alan Colmes defended Obama on FOX News arguing,
“Isn’t tax breaks for the rich redistribution?”

Currently the top 10% of earners pay 71% of federal income taxes.

Oh, well.  According to Alan Colmes, it’s not their money, anyway.

    Alan Colmes is simply a brain-dead Collectivist. (See the period?)

  • James Wolfe

    OMG! Can people actually be this stupid? Allowing people to keep their own money, money they earned themselves, is redistribution? From who?!? We are doomed as a society.

    Drinking $800 bottles of champagne with Jay-Z and appearing on Letterman..Obama sure is the ‘common’ man.

    If you haven’t yet – support Romney’s campaign by signing up for his official newsletter:

    Alan you ignorant slut. .

    Keeping one’s own Fruit-of-their-labor is NOT redistribution of wealth. .

    And as for leaked Romney tape. .
    How about MEDIAgate? or OBAMAgate

    I remember listening to Alan Colmes on AM radio somewhere between the late 80s and early 90s. He was such a moon bat that it was very entertaining. I can’t believe that he is on Fox News!

  • Granny

    No, Alan. Borrowing nearly a trillion dollars that ALL taxpayers, including millions not yet born, will have to pay back and then distributing that to political cronies of Obama is “redistribution of wealth.”

  • Adirondack Patriot

    He is mentally retarded in the clinical sense. Absolutely mentally retarded.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Wow, don’t know what this means, but Romney has just taken a 3 point lead in NH on Rasmussen in a poll taken AFTER the 46% “gaffe”.

  • Bill Mitchell

    You know, if we just went to a pure consumption tax everyone would pay their fair share. It would also be progressive as the more money people make, the more things they buy. t would literally be “pay as you go”.

  • donh

    Yes that’s right …Installing a buglar alarm to keep thieves away is engaging in ” wealth redistribution “

    Those who wonder why Romney hasn’t pulled ahead of Obama in the polls ought to get a load of what’s being said about him, his background, and his policies in something called “Urban Talk Radio.”

    Channel-hopper that I am, I landed on San Diego 102.3 KJLH, and listened to somebody named “Steve” lie — as in big, fat, hairy whoppers — about the Mitt Romney’s proposed budgetary policy.

    My guess is the person speaking would be Steve Harvey, who really should have more sense than that. His basic rap against Romney is that he’s rich, and so his kids have no concept about needing anything, including college. There’s a button to stream his show, at the moment.

    Steve Harvey is prejudiced against successful people? Why? This is a guy who is an author and an entrepreneur. One has to wonder about the source of his funding. Was his radio show, and his start funded by investors, or by the government?

    And who told him that Mitt Romney plans to triple the military budget so that poor kids could go fight to protect his family?

    Rancid radio, this morning.

    Alan is not all that bright.

  • AvidChristian

    I concur with Bill Mitchell–a consumption tax (aka “fair tax”), would ensure that EVERYONE purchasing goods in this country would pay taxes. The more you buy, the more tax you pay. Then all the illegals and entitlement recipients pay taxes too. That’s why it’s a “fair” tax. So why cant our gov’t scrap the current useless system, and adopt one that taxes less and provides more revenue?

  • Monkey Wrench

    How do you have taxes and not have redistribution of wealth? Even with a flat tax, some people pay more. And some of my tax money will end up going to pay for food stamps or to pay for someone with severe handicaps, so my wealth gets redistributed to someone else. Unless everyone pays the exact same amount in tax, money is being redistributed.

  • paul52

    Alan, write a big, fat check made out to ‘U.S. Treasury’ if YOU don’t feel you are taxed enough. I have yet to see a lib voluntarily overpay their taxes… wonder why.

  • snap boy

    No idea how individuals keeping the money they have earned is “redistributing” but Alan’s logic is usually specious. Bailing out rich investors in green energy products certainly IS redistributing money, collected from taxing at least half the public, to reward supporters.

    No, dear Alan, it’s called earnings.
