    Do YOU think the Government should redistribute money

    We all know Obama wants to redistribute money. Do you feel the same way. Tax the rich, tax the corps and give to the poor.

    Redistributing money is $ocialism. If you think America is away from $ocialism, think again.

    That's existed for decades and decades. The only thing Obama has done to the tax rates is extend the bush cuts.

    That's a different issue. I don't agree with Obamacare but it's certainly not wealth distribution. No one is being given money, in fact people are being forced to PAY money because of Obamacare. The Supreme Court struck down the part forcing states to expand medicaid, so there's certainly no wealth distribution going on via Obamacare.

    Well, wealth is not merely money. It could take the form of services, food stamps, etc. But you're right on that part - the OP asks about money, not wealth.

    you didn't ask what he'd added, you asked what he supported. That being said, Obamacare is definitely redistributive.

    ...um. yes they are? specifically families below a certain multiple of the poverty line are being given subsidies to go into the exchanges and purchase health insurance.

    Here. Calculate your winnings - courtesy of the US Government and the people they took it from originally

    Corporate welfare. Yuck. I don't like Obamacare, like I said. It's disgusting to see all that money taken from taxpayers and handed over to insurance companies. The actual cost of healthcare could easily be less than half of what it currently is if the middlemen were cut out.
