A Little Trap

October 18, 2012 § Leave a comment

Republican Representative Martha Roby from Alabama was asked in an interview posted on Youtube on October 15 about her thoughts on wealth redistribution: “Do you think that the government should redistribute its citizens wealth by forcefully taking money from some citizens through taxes in order to provide goods and services to others.”

Roby, came out against the redistribution of wealth, but then was asked what she thought about farm subsidies, which she said she supported. When the reporter pointed out that farm subsidies were in effect a redistribution of wealth, her response was “well I see now that you’re trying to put me in a little trap.” She then went on to defend farm subsidies because there were circumstances that were out of the hands of the farmers themselves, such as the weather. When asked about subsidies to Wall Street, she quickly ended the interview.
