Robin Hood Hank (Paulsen) 
A co-worker of mine, a rabid right-winger, was commenting yesterday about how Barack Hussein Obama (as he always calls him) wants to use US tax policy to redistribute wealth. I can at least understand, if not sympathize, with that point of view. But he, like the vast majority of so-called conservatives, has chosen to ignore that this is exactly what the Bush administration, over the last 10 days or so, has been doing - redistributing wealth. Only they've been doing it in reverse - rather than stealing (as my colleague would call it) from the rich to give to the poor, they're engaged in taking the debts of the rich and saddling the the rest of us with them.
