    Obama: Corporate Profits "Have To Be Shared By American Workers"

    "If we're fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports, the benefits cannot just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They have to be shared by American workers, who need to know that opening markets will lift their standard of living as well as your bottom line," President Obama told the Chamber of Commerce on Monday morning.

    Obama's no socialist, no not at all.

    Profits need to be shared with those for who the risk and investment are greatest, the shareholders.

    Obama seems to think Business exists to provide people with jobs. He just doesn't GET IT.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I do not think he was saying anything socialist at all. Why is it wrong for workers to expect decent wages for hard work and productivity. He told them that it was nothing that could be legislated, but urged them to help their country in providing jobs and opportunities. If business owners are shortsighted they will indeed look for the quick profit that will not last, as a weak US consumer base will leave them with no business down the road. In the longterm scheme, providing good paying jobs will go further to increase their profits and sustain their business into the future.

    This post demonstrates exactly what is wrong in America today. Our society has become a culture of "how can I maximize my bottom line" without any concern about what it takes to get there.

    There was a time in this country where people took pride in their jobs and in their work because the company took pride in their workers and their products.
    No one, including Obama is saying that companies and shareholder shouldn't make a profit...What Obama is saying is absolutely correct...we need to return to the time when American companies had a soul and actually reinvested some of the money the company made into the company and the workforce.

    Didn't President Obama just tell Bill O'Reilly that he ws NOT into wealth redistribution?

    O'REILLY: Do you deny the assessment? Do you deny that you are a man who wants to redistribute wealth.

    OBAMA: Absolutely.

    Obama believes he knows better than the entire business community, how to run their businesses. It's so dumb it hurts.
    Unlike government, we don't have successful taxpayers like ourselves, to bail us out of we make stupid decisions.

    Lenin, Trotsky, and Marx agree wholeheartedly.

    Folks, rich people won't risk their money by employing people if the potential for return is not significant.

    This fantasy land you want doesn't exist, and Communism doesn't work. Where does that leave you?

    Whovian, people can't possibly be expected to manage their income responsibly. How else are they going to get their flat screens and iPhones?
