Words: Meaning Is Optional
Funny, isn't it? When liberals talk about having the wealthy pay a little more in taxes, it's CLASS WARFARE!!!!! When the RWS™ blame our problems on the poor, it's... well, whatever it is, it can't be class warfare, because that's what liberals do.
Sorta like changes in the tax code, right? When taxes, as is now the case, are structured to send more and more money upstream, to the very wealthy, that's not income redistribution. It's ... well, whatever it is, it can't be that, because Ronald Reagan and George Bush did it. But suggesting moving a little money the other way? There you go: income redistribution.
I'd suggest Republicans provide us all with dictionaries, but it's pretty evident they don't much cotton to carrying around reference material.
