What do you owe your country?
In tonight’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly asked the question, what do Americans owe the country? That brewing debate was prompted after President Obama gave a speech in which he stated, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
The O’Reilly Factor host assessed, “Apparently the president believes that the federal government should take more in taxes from wealthy Americans and business owners because the feds make individual success possible.”
