Yeah, slaves toiled away and got nothing for it. Except for free food, free housing, free clothes, free medical. True, they had no say in what kind of food, housing, clothing, or medical care they had; that was decided for them. True, they were unable to build any wealth for their retirement years - they depended on slaveowners for that also. So they worked all day for nothing but the slaveowner told them it was OK because they got everything taken care of for free. If that doesn't sound like Obama's America, I don't know what does. But he won't call it slavery because working Americans still get a paycheck - the government just confiscates it all.
