How The Debbie can defend these comments by President Obama is beyond comprehension. Don’t attack success. Don’t expect red blooded Americans to accept that the hard work of their youth belongs to the Federal Government because they drive on roads or have safe neighborhoods because of great Police Departments.
Has President Obama forgotten that the Federal Government is funded through the collection of taxes? So if you are successful, you earn more. If you are a high earner, you pay a higher percentage in tax. Therefore, you are even more responsible for your success than the 47% of Americans that currently pay no tax at all!
