Obama in response to an overtaxed plumber:

“It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too.”

“I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

That goes back to my previous comment that he sees the economy as a pie to be divided. He doesn’t seem much interested in how we could make a bigger pie.
