Paging Joe the Plumber: Obama Still Wants To Spread The Wealth

Given the flap that ensued when he famously told Joe the Plumber that he wanted to "spread the wealth," I figured Barack Obama wouldn't be making such a suggestion again anytime soon.  I figured wrong.

Pres.-elect Obama to Tom Brokaw on today's Meet The Press:

I think the important principle, because sometimes when we start talking about taxes, and I say I want a more balanced tax code, people think, well, that's class warfare. No.  It turns out that our economy grows best when the benefits of the economy are most widely spread.  And that has been true historically.

Got that, you greedy rich guys?  Higher taxes are good for you.  Paging Joe the Plumber!

Will the MSM pick up on Obama's renewed call to redistribute income via government fiat?
