The Leftist Mind

I suppose I should at least give Hillary credit for her honesty
"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "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. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
Right, even if the tax cuts may have appeared to help you, they really didn't, because, you know, only a bleeding heart liberal truly understands the common good. And damnit, you will finance it!

Notice in particular the rhetorical sleight of hand of, 'we are not going to give it to you' sentiments. As though the government in taking less of a what a person earns is actaully bestowing gifts upon them.
