Sometimes we like to pretend that the Obama Administration is stupid. It makes us feel better. It offers an explanation for almost three years of failure in spite of promises of prosperity and hope. I can't count the number of times I have heard liberals, who supported this President, say he's inept. Apparently a newly formed conclusion in spite of the availability of information on this man's lack of experience and credentials prior to the 2008 election.
He is not inept. He is evil. He has surrounded himself with evil men and women who hate this country just as much as he does. That is why things are not getting better--it is part of the plan to de-develop the US. That is why Liberals will not turn from the same tired and failing ideas of the last three years. Their answer is always to spend more! An inept person could still recognize they are doing more harm than good and step back. This President and his band of Liberals will not step back, their political survival depends on continuing to implement the plan.
In order to redistribute wealth (part of the plan), Liberals must take from the "haves" to give to the "have nots." Deficit spending has allowed years of giving without any taking. Those days are over, thanks to Conservatives (including the Tea Party). Now the taking must begin in earnest.
The Buffett Tax allows the President to close the loop on his distribution scheme while giving the class welfare nuts a big pat on the back. If Buffett wants to pay more in taxes, maybe he should start by paying the tax he currently owes? But Buffett doesn't want to pay more in taxes, he wants everyone else, including the middle class to pay more in taxes. Why? Because both Buffett and the President want to "close the system."
A massive tax burden, paid by millionaires on paper but distributed to the middle class in reality, will lock in the power of today's elite. The beautiful thing about Capitalism is the upward mobility and opportunity it creates for everyone. That can be very challenging for the people who want to control America. If you take money out of the private economy, you limit this mobility. You keep people down, destitute, and dependent on you (the elite).
