Jerry Della Femina says what so many of us have been thinking:
I made the investment while Obama might have been in high school or smoking dope in college or whatever he was doing. He didn’t make the investment; I did. He didn’t take the risk; I did. He didn’t improve the house; I did. And then in the end, he’s saying I must pay him more.
I always was happy to pay my fair share of taxes. I’m careful to pay every single penny on my taxes. I don’t have any money offshore. But the fact is that at this stage the general feeling in the country is, “You have it, give it to us.”
And I worked too hard to get it. I spent too much time, working too hard, to get it. Where was President Obama when I was working until 1, 2 in the morning and basically not spending as much time with my kids as I would have liked to? Where was he when I worked on Saturdays and Sundays?
Well, he’s here now. And what he’s saying is: “OK, you made the money, now you have to pay your fair share.”
I think my fair share can be what it’s been all along.
I work hard and I pay my taxes. No matter what the administration.
This is an administration that is spending more money than any administration in history. To spend more money, they need more money.
That’s where I object.
It’s a case of a president who really wants to redistribute wealth.
