Obama still has a pile of money after campaign

From FoxNews:

Apparently, Obama's campaign chest still contains over $30 million, and the discussions are on as to whether he gets to use it to create "a grass roots network" to support his agenda, or to put it into the party to help pay the debts of the various candidates and organizations.

I think the answer is obvious. In accordance with his own stated principles that rich people deserve to pay more taxes and wealth needs to be redistributed, he has no right to have that much money, no matter how hard he worked to raise it. He needs to divide that money up and send each one of us a check for $.01. I think that's the only fair way to handle it.

Remember what Rich Moran says (D VA):
We have been guided by a Republican administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an antipathy towards redistributing wealth and they may be able to sustain it for a while but it doesn’t work in the long run.
Come on, Obama, cough it up. Stand up for your principles and lead by example.
