That's not good enough for Barack Obama however as he feels the Constitution did not spell out how to redistribute wealth in America, that is, the working document of our system of government should actually contain the Amazon Wish List of all the government goodies anyone who is here would want. Apparently this one term Senator who votes present more than anything else is now a Constitutional scholar.
The framers knew too well what confiscatory tax policies did to England. As a matter of fact the US didn't have income taxes until the Civil War until they were found unconstitutional (and later restored when the constitution was amended).
If Americans think that they want to vote themselves some goodies, soon they may regret it when the bill for the goodies shows up.
