Say Barack Obama, What's Your Take on Redistribution?

Spreadin’ the wealth around, the 1998-era demo tape version:

“I think the trick is figuring out how to restructure government systems that pooled resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody’s got a shot.”

A shot? Don’t let Paul Krugman and MSNBC hear that racist eliminationist rhetoric!

Update: “In 2001, Obama Talked Up How ‘Redistributive Change’ Must Come Through Political Power, Not the Courts.”
