Candid camera: Profiles in Democrat brutal honesty

Posted by: ST on April 2, 2010 at 11:14 am

Rep. Phil Hare (D-IL) on the Constitutionality of healthcare “reform”:

Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., on ObamaCare’s effect on other big government social programs (includes audio):

Let me be clear: There’s probably going to have to be a significant reform of other social programs as the Federal Government assumes more responsibility for health care for the nation’s people, there are other social programs that are probably going to undermine some elements of social cohesion, there’s no doubt about that.

Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) on how ObamaCare will address the “issue” of “mal-distribution of income”:

“Too often, much of late, the last couple three years, the mal-distribution of income in America is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy and the middle income class is left behind,” he said. “Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America.”

Vice President Joe Biden (D-Lala Land) on whether or not ObamaCare could and should be considered a redistribution of wealth (hat tip):

There’s also the issue of whether these tax cuts, in conjunction with the health care reform bill signed last week, represent a redistribution of wealth in America, as many claim.

“It’s a simple proposition to us: Everyone is entitled to adequate medical health care,” Biden says. “If you call that a ‘redistribution of income’ — well, so be it. I don’t call it that. I call it just being fair — giving the middle class taxpayers an even break that the wealthy have been getting.”

Video below:

Then there are Rep. Dingell’s recent “control the people” remarks. And former DNC Chair Howard Dean’s cushy relationship with European Socialists (scroll).

And last but not least, the most infamous redistribution of wealth remarks to come from a Democrat politico in the last two years:

JOE WURZELBACHER, PLUMBER: Your new tax plan is going tax me more, isn’t it?

OBAMA: It’s not that I want to punish your success; I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you that they’ve got a chance to success, too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.

Video:

Hey, at least they’re being honest about who they are and what they’re all about, right? It used to be, most left wing politicos would try to obfuscate or outright lie about their true socialist colors. But the last few years? They’ve seen fit to “come out of the closet” in shockingly upfront ways now more so than ever as to where exactly they stand on the issue of the role of the federal government in the lives of average Joe and Jane citizens.

Time to wake up, America!

    Just returned from wading through a left-wing cesspool and found this nugget that touches on the same theme:

    On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, ron paul supporters, alex jones conspiracy types and american flag wavers.

    LINK

    Read it again, slowly, especially their list of the types of people supporting the Tea Parties.

    To these libs, “American flag wavers” now fall into the same category as racists, fascists, and homophobes. Now can we question their patriotism?

    Aside from that, what kind of “anarchist” gets upset because conservatives might curtail redistribution programs run by the government? You’d expect that anarchists wouldn’t want an all-powerful government, but these people are weapons-grade stupid.

    VERY well said, GWRat!!!

    Ditto.

    Now can we question their patriotism?

    Oh, hell yeah…!!!

    These libs are the name callers and fear mongers. NOT the Republicans who don’t have time to make up this crap..You want to know why they don’t have time to make this stuff up? IT’S BECAUSE THEY WORK FOR A LIVING..Imagine that. What a concept. Instead of complaining about what ‘they’re not getting’ we develop strategies within our realm of MAKING OUR LIVES BETTER. And along comes the COMMIE HAND OF FATE..

    Excuse my energy. I had two coffees for lunch and two puffs of albuterol and listened to Rush at lunchtime.

    Conservatives should use the barter system as much as possible to reduce their reportable income and help starve the Federal Tax Beast. The only way to reform it is to take away its power- MONEY.

  5. Pilgrim says:

    Hmm…

    Uncle Joe says that now the rest of the underpriviledged and under/un-insured Americans can now enjoy the rare treats that only the “wealthy” have been able to enjoy: to wit (not to be confused with his half-to-nonexistent), health insurance.

    So, even according to the Libs’ hyperinflated numbers (30 million uninsured – sob, snort, sniffle), that would mean that around 90% of Americans currently DO have health insurance.

    Wow, that also explain the LIbs’ definition of the RICH that they now intend to tax — 90% of Americans.

    Yuppers. That’s their way of “doing the math” — fuzzy math, indeed!

    *I think I posted in the wrong place*

  7. Lies and treason. Lies and treason. Repeat until the sheep believe we are acting in their best interest. Lies and treason. Lies and treason. I figure there are 219 members of the house who should be charged and tried as traitors. Note the Retired thing, OK. I can say that. I have done more for the Republic in a single day than all 219 have done in their collective lives.

    Well, it’s about time they dropped pretenses and started admitting they don’t give a rusty screw about the Constitution, from the president on down.

    The Axis of Evil (Obama, Pelousy and Dingy) haven’t cared about it since the first day they took any office, and I would guess that, being a “Constitutional lawyer,” Mr. Obama hasn’t cared anything about it since before he was accepted into Hawvud as a barely-eligible affirmative action idiot. At that point my guess is he couldn’t even SPELL “Constitution.”
