    He is actually correct. As income increases, so does ones desire to increase their leisure. As leisure increases, income naturally decreases. At a certain point, i will not need any more money and can.... retire.

    Not yet though I am accustomed to a certain lifestyle.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    No?

    Wait, did he say "I think at a certain point you've made enough money so you'll have to give it away?"

    Not that either?

    Context is vital.
    Context is vital. Both in what he said immedietely and what he's said before. You know, like commenting about spreading the wealth around.

    I do think at a certain point they've made enough money, enough so that the government should regulate their ability to lose MY money while they play games trying to squeeze out more for themselves.

    When the utility of money declines to the point where you have to spend truckloads of it to get any kicks, you're at that point.

    Why is it we never hear Leftists say "I do think at a certain point the government has enough of our money through taxes and Ponzi Schemes, and limited enough of your liberties"?

    They always want more for doing nothing but making us poorer and our lives more complicated.

    But we, with some hard work, cleverness, knowledge, or skill in demand... No, no, no... we have to give more.

    To think the first tax was for a tiny fraction of the very wealthiest. Now it smacks 50% in the teeth, while another 50% sticks out their hand... and trying to change it is seen as unfair.

    Their appetite for our money is insatiable.

    And what do they want to cut?
    Precisely what the government should fund, further weakening America.

    Yeah, for a government to lean so much on the wealthy they sure waste no time tearing them down.

    Technically he donated more than his presidential salary last FY, he just didn't symbolically call it his salary. It was Biden who didn't donate much to charity.

    I bet that's what the executives who got bonuses as their companies went under would say.

    Liberty? Rightists only care about fiscal liberty.

    I really wish conservatives here would start speaking in terms of reality again but given our country's discussion these days it is unlikely.

    Somehow they think Obama has this big secret plot to steal all their money. Because them LIBERALS just HATE rich people. If they would bother to look at what Obama has actually been doing they just might realize he's basically Bush III with a different set of giant corporations to shovel money into.
