Should have been the other way around but then again it is Faux Noise so it is a conservative talking point masked as some sort of news.
https://mediamatters.org/research/201104210025

Claiming Obama calls the rich "selfish" & that he is using "class warfare"
Faux reports Obama saying
"Their basic view is that no matter how successful I am, no matter how much I've taken from this country ... that somehow, I now have no obligation to people who are less fortunate than me, and I have no real obligation to future generations to make investments so they have a better future."


When he said
"No, it's a great question. Look, here is what I'd say. The Republican budget that was put forward I would say is fairly radical. I wouldn't call it particularly courageous. I do think Mr. Ryan is sincere. I think he's a patriot. I think he wants to solve a real problem, which is our long-term deficit. But I think that what he and the other Republicans in the House of Representatives also want to do is change our social compact in a pretty fundamental way.

Their basic view is that no matter how successful I am, no matter how much I've taken from this country -- I wasn't born wealthy; I was raised by a single mom and my grandparents. I went to college on scholarships. There was a time when my mom was trying to get her PhD, where for a short time she had to take food stamps. My grandparents relied on Medicare and Social Security to help supplement their income when they got old.

So their notion is, despite the fact that I've benefited from all these investments -- my grandfather benefited from the GI Bill after he fought in World War II -- that somehow I now have no obligation to people who are less fortunate than me and I have no real obligation to future generations to make investments so that they have a better [future]."

Faux Noise- lying sacks 'o s***!

the flip side is.
I or MY family PAYED.
no one helped ME.
let ALL do as I did.

WHY should I help the poor.

Exactly right. It really truly floors me that Faux keeps trying these distortions. Can the american public not see this for what it is? Faux news should be paying the republican party and their 24/7 political ad must carry that identifier.

In the long run. Everyone get some sort of help & support along the way. I wonder if anyone can come with a person that is totally self made?

we either get help from family, friends, state, or country.
even the one person company needs customers.
