Take the money from the mean rich people. They aren't doing anything with it anyway, right?
--------------
Nobody`s calling them mean and we`re only talking about 3% increase in taxes to bring us back to Clinton era economics. The problem I have with the uber-wealthy is their willingness to spend millions in lobbying so they can pay less in taxes. Our government doesn`t run the show anymore it`s the wealthy.
If a guy robs someone of money they go to jail. If a wealthy venture capitalist robs people of their retirement they walk. The system is skewed towards the rich and sevices to help the poor are cut. The system is not working and this is not "capitalism".

Expendable money. Right. So it means nothing.

Look, let's just cut through all your word vomit, and get down to what you want:

In that useless fit of sarcasm you don`t even respond to any of altaru`s points, save one that you dismiss and then put words in his mouth. You sir, have no idea what you`re talking about.

Here is the transcript and the slides that he used in his speech, it's pretty easy to follow along with.

I will say that it is pretty common sense. It isn`t like he said anything groundbreaking, so I`m not sure why they wouldn`t have posted it.
