No, Senator, It Is NOT Congress’s Job To ‘Redistribute Wealth’

He is scolding Congress for ‘not doing its job’ in ‘redistributing wealth in a fair way’. He’s obviously mistaken America for someplace else.

Surely he must be describing some Soviet-Era state with assigned housing and breadlines… not a nation forged in the Spirit of ’76. Right?

You’d like to think so, but you’d be wrong.

The Democrats’ “Long March” toward Socialism (or worse!) is picking up the pace. They aren’t even trying to hide it anymore. Their buddies in Hollywood are citing Marx at award shows (‘Workers Of The World Unite’) while Senators scold Congress for failing to do their bit in wealth redistribution.

Sorry, but that is explicitly NOT the job of elected officials. And anyone who thinks it IS should get the Hell out of Dodge and work in the Private Sector someplace he won’t do so much damage. Maybe buffing the floors in a museum during the night shift or something.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) on Wednesday said Congress is not doing its job of redistributing income in a fair way.

“We know Congress isn’t doing its job to redistribute income in any way that’s fair to hundreds of millions of Americans, we know that,” Brown said during a hearing at the Senate Banking Committee.

“Senator McConnell and the president have refused to raise the minimum wage, it’s been stuck for 11 years at under eight dollars,” Brown said. “They took away overtime for about 2 or 3 million Americans because of truncating the overtime rule, tax cuts for the rich, and now tax cuts for Medicare.” — Free Beacon

Is it any wonder we don’t trust these people?

There is zero Constitutional mandate for the sorts of things they hope to accomplish through legislative powers, and yet, they still press on, undeterred.

But anyone who stands opposed to their agenda is ‘tyrannical’ and ‘authoritarian’.

How very convenient for them.
