The Aspirant Confiscator In Chief
Addressing the DNC winter meeting, Sen Hillary Clinton said:
The same is true with energy independence. The Democrats know what needs to be done. Again we're working to try to push this agenda forward. The other day the oil companies recorded the highest profits in the history of the world. I want to take those profits and I want to put them into a strategic energy fund that will begin to fund alternative, smart energy alternatives and technologies that will begin to actually move us in the direction of energy independence.Which reminded me of what Clinton said at a Democratic fundraiser in June of 2004:
"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Clinton said, according to the Associated Press. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you.At least then it was "we" rather than "I."
"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
