I am confused. If Obama succeeds in leveling the income playing field, and redistributes income and wealth so that everyone has about the same, who among them will start the next Google? Amazon? Microsoft? And how do we solve the problem of the truly lazy? Once they are paid the same to flip burgers as the construction worker who pours concrete, will we be able to find people willing to work harder than burger flippers?

Doesn't matter. You didn't build that, anyway!

Where are the spatula-ready jobs how?

Forget the burger flippers, when you can get the same for doing nothing, why would anyone work at all?

Healthcare.gov is a good indicator of what you'll get. Remember the words of the Russians just before the fall of the Soviet Union.
"They pretend to pay us real money so we pretend to do real work."

Amazing that all the educated Socialists and Marxists teaching in our universities and filling political offices, the press and entertainment industries cannot see as clearly as Old Vince.
Ex-patriots, here from Communism or Socialism know, but many have been driven, by the muzzle of a gun, to be quiet. But ask them, if you find one.
As one said 'We pretended to work, and they pretended to pay us'.
So a citizen of the Republic of Georgia, who claims to be a doctor, is doing live-in home care for an average, but frugal, old woman who has accumulated savings, until the woman dies.
This skilled care-taker had not live as well in Georgia as she could here. And was able to send money home to her impoverished family. Yet our President wants such a system.

I propose in the name of fairness and income equality that ALL the money of the legislators in congress be confiscated and their pay level adjusted to that of the AVERAGE lower income citizen. That should include ALL of their stock, property holdings and business and that of their close relatives too.
Now for the President, We cut his pay down to the same low level cut off his funds for lavish dinners and travel on AF-1. No more fancy expensive vacations and send his kids to a public school.
Fair is fair and its NOT fair that he and the Congress make so much money.
