Are you making a class warfare argument then? If so, it didn't hurt Obama who is supposed to be for taxing the wealthy. It didn't happen.
And how is this any different than a man of the people buying votes for them at the expense of others? Seems to me that this could also be a check and balance against demagogues like Obama. Again, though, it didn't hurt the left in the presidential election.
