Barack Obama told a tax-burdened plumber over the weekend that his economic philosophy is to "spread the wealth around".
Spread whose wealth? That's my question, sir.
Republican presidential nominee John McCain argued on Wednesday the U.S. government should take up his $300 billion plan to buy troubled mortgages in order to put an end to a protracted housing crisis.
And from where will Uncle Sam get that 300 billion? You get 3 guesses and the first two don't count.
It sounds to me like whichever one wins, a revisionist Robin Hood is coming to Washington. Our pockets are about to be picked by the Merry Men (and women) of Capitol Hill. You and I who have worked hard for whatever "wealth" we have are getting ready to part with more of it. Or do the candidates have another way for the Fed to come up with funds? If so, please share it with us.
(Note that I am fair and balanced.)
