Spreading It

Here's a supposed explanation
of modern progressive taxation:
It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance at success, too. And I think that when we spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.
Obama doesn't want to punish anyone. He just wants to help someone else. And that just happens to involve taking stuff away from the first person.

Take away
from person A
and give to person B.

How that helps us all, I can't quite see.
