Nancy Pelosi: Hey, what say we spread the wealth around a bit – Video

In the interest of fairness of course. From last night’s O’Reilly Factor. Ya know, I’m just about at the point where not only does this not shock me, it’s kinda loosing its punch, even for a small “l” libertarian (H/T Larry Elder) like myself.

Speaking Monday to the United Steelworkers Union Pelosi showed her true colors, not that it offended anyone in the Steelworkers Union.

I could go for the cheap shot here and play this:

Or this:

But I wouldn’t do that. It wouldn’t be fair.

UPDATE: From Gateway, here’s the transcript.

“We’re talking about addressing the disparity of income where the wealthy people continue to get wealthier and some other people are falling out of the middle class when we want to bring many more people into the middle class. But that disparity is not just about wages alone, that disparity is about ownership and equity. It’s all about fairness in our country,”

    Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?  (Obama on your shoulder, Pelosi on the other)

    Can you have two devils on your shoulders, winnie?  I thought one was supposed to be an angel?  😉

    I will believe she is committed to "fairness" and wealth disparity when she gives the majority of her wealth away to other people.

    No way!  She can spend your money with ease, but her own?  She throws nickels around like they are manhole covers!

    I wonder how the workers of Pratt& Whitney and UTC that are about to lose their jobs feel today about the profits that the corporation is making. The socialism sounds pretty good.

    Is it P&W and UTC, or the economy and policies by the Øbama administration and the controlling Democrat Party that are truly responsible?  No profits, no corporation.  More taxes, less jobs.  I am sure it is not a pure either/or problem, but the failed policies of this administration have much to do with the malaise that P&W and the rest of the country is feeling.

    Someone should tell "Miss Nancy" that life is not fair. If they pass Cap and Trade these steel workers will not have jobs.Takes a lot of carbon to make steel.

    Why is it that I have yet to see anyone who is such a fan of "fairness" an "helping the little guy" and all that jazz go out and start a company where they ensure that all their employees are paid more than they are, any profits made over a certain level are immediately given back to the employees, people are hired based on the amount of money the company is making instead of on how large a labor force they need to continue to be profitable and the like? Why is it always the Fed that needs to do these things and not something that they leverage their frankly enormous resources to do regardless of the "system"? Seems to me that would be a much more direct and less divisive way to deal with the problem.

    Socialism always looks good to those thinking they are going to grab a piece of someone else’s pie (da rich).

    Because people that believe that this could be done know nothing about how to create and maintain a business (particularly in a climate of taxes being raised at a political whim), or the first thing about creating a job (see Rambo).  Pols like to do the easy work of parasitizing the job creator and hold power over him/her in the process.
