Ignorant opinion of the day

Eugene Robinson:

The wealthy’s rewards

Thirty years of the rich thieving from the poor.
No one ever got rich by stealing money from the poor.  People get rich by producing goods and services that people want and are willing to pay for.  The Robinson formulation is that the money the rich acquire is really owned by the poor or by the government for the benefit of the poor.

This is just flat wrong and is bad policy on top of that.  Robinhood government makes everyone poorer.  As Kennedy said, a rising tide lifts all boats great and small.  We have seen three years of the failure of liberal economic policy.  It is time to get back to something that really works.
