President Barack Obama is re-distributing America's wealth by using his control of regulations and the bureaucracy. Congress gets bypassed, the consequence from decades of granting more power to the executive branch.
A runaway President is the inevitable result from the dizzying growth of government.
Obama uses this power to push his core agenda, which is re-distributing wealth in the name of “fairness.” To counteract the supposed greed of the rich, he teaches that everyone else should be greedy by taking from others to get things for themselves. Consistently, Obama states that more taxes on the wealthy are the necessary link to fund more benefits for everybody else.
Although offensive to many, Barack and Michelle Obama's extravagant lifestyle at public expense becomes a symbol of achieving success through redistribution.
Ronald Reagan captured the Obama philosophy in a simple statement: “When you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can always count on Paul's vote.”
This is an ancient practice: Bribe people to support you and to love you as their benefactor. The theme destroys the moral fiber of a nation. Supposedly the moral distinction from robbery, extortion and embezzlement evaporates because government is the middleman that does the actual taking.
Examples of Obama's giveaways through the bureaucracy are hidden in plain sight:
Obama's IRS says it will send checks to Americans-in-waiting (previously known as illegal aliens), up to $35,000 per family according to the Congressional Research Service. Payments begin as soon as Department of Homeland Security underlings declare everybody legal and issue work permits to them.
Obama's Consumer Financial Protection Board requires more loans be provided to people with lousy credit (to avoid CFPB lawsuits over “disparate impact” upon minorities). This revives the bad mortgages that crashed our economy a few years ago.
Obama's Housing and Urban Development is poised to issue regulations that essentially will require prosperous neighborhoods to subsidize poor neighborhoods.
Obama's EPA regulations are described by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R, OK) as creating re-distribution under the pretense of combating climate change.
Constantly-shifting interpretations of Obamacare curry favor where needed.
Obamaphone: He didn't start this Lifeline program, but tripled its size through the FCC bureaucracy. Now they want to subsidize Internet service for millions, in addition to providing cell phones.
Skyrocketing numbers of people on food stamps, Medicaid and disability.
