I was one of the greatest Hillary critics on this forum until the Republican President won the nomination.

And I started a thread criticizing the Democrats last week.

Not to confuse policy with ideology, but his entire you did not build that and the rich do not pay enough in taxes.

The CBO reports based on official IRS data that in 2009 the top 1% of income earners paid 39% of all federal income taxes, three times their share of income at 13%. Yet, the middle 20% of income earners, the true middle class, paid just 2.7% of total federal income taxes on net that year, while earning 15% of income. That means the top 1% paid almost 15 times as much in federal income taxes as the entire middle 20%, even though the middle 20% earned more income

Apart from some sort of health provision for some of the poor (pretty well universal in normal capitalism) Mr Obama was a standard conservative. Mr Trump is an insane fascist who cares for nothing but his bloated ego and belly..

I wish people would quit misquoting that !!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKjPI6no5ng

Without roads, bridges, schools, stable government, business friendly policy, police and fire protection, access to capital, NO ONE could succeed. No matter how wildly you have succeeded SOME BODY, SOME WHERE, helped you out. A friendly banker or investor ?? A teacher ?? A mentor that gave you solid advise ?? A conversation that sparked an idea ?? A partner or even a spouse that shouldered some of the burden ??

Would Donald Trump be sitting in the white house right now if he hadn't been born rich ?? GIVEN a good education ?? helped to start his own enterprises by his father and later inherited substantial holdings from that same father ??

Amazon, Facebook and Netflix didn't have to invent the internet. But with out it, they would not exist !!

THAT'S what he was talking about.
Thanks from Hollywood and Clara007

Hey said. "If you have a business you didn't build that"

That is a long and hard pushed Marxist point. The fact that it made it into one of the drone lords speaches...well speaks for itself. IMO

Please stop making idiotic statements. The actual words of Obama are right there in the quote above you.
You need to stop listening to what the voices in your head tell you. *shrug*
