In IA, Obama says wants govt to “help people by giving them a ladder up.” Yup, right after he takes it out of their neighbor’s garage. #tcot

Here’s the full quote:
Fourth, my plan would reduce our deficit without sticking it to the middle class. Independent analysis has shown that my plan would cut deficits by $4 trillion. And I’ve already worked with the Republicans in Congress to cut a trillion dollars’ worth of spending, because those of us who care about what government can do to help people give them a ladder up. … I want to make sure that we also reform our tax code so that it’s simple and fair, and so that we ask the wealthiest households in America to pay higher incomes on — or higher taxes on incomes over $250,000.
