    Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) at a town hall event in New Jersey in the middle of this week let it be known that he wants to eliminate the rich. Here is the transcript that goes along with the above video:

    Questioner: "How much money is taken or can be taken from illegal gains such as drug seizures and applied to replenishment of beaches and improving the quality of beaches in New Jersey?"

    U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ): "There is that opportunity along the way, but there's another place to get your money.
    snip
    "It's offending [sic] that say ok 'you can't take care of your family, too bad.' Go to Warren Buffett. You heard him say the other day that the richest man in the America, if not the second or third one, he said that we ought to pay more for the privileges that we wealthy have in this country.

    Its a tough fight but we got to eliminate the rich. We've got to eliminate the fraudulent practice. We've expanded things that have no value."

    Lautenberg barely sounds coherent. He's always been a tool, but this seems like dementia.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    He cleary said "waste" as reported by local reporters at the event. Try listening to the audio.
