J.K. Rowling says that she didn’t build that. And now – she’s a billionaire. I truly believe the only ones who feel entitled are the wealthy citizens who complain that they have to pay a few % more in taxes even though their lives and the lives of their children are without any financial challenges whatsoever. A person who complains about that trade off is selfish, greedy and deserves for someone to smack them in the face like Cher in Moonstruck … “Snap out of it.”
From the Washington Post HERE:
(What Obama said: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” What he says he meant: We all rely on one another, and benefit from public works in some way. What his critics heard: From government comes all good things.)
Rowling’s own feeling, she said, is that it was Britain’s government services that allowed all her industry to pay off.
“I worked extremely hard… I take credit for the work. But I received a free education. I received free health care… I’m unapologetic about saying this,” she added. “I had pneumonia when my daughter was under one year old. If we hadn’t had free health care in this country, God only knows what would have happened to either of us. I am proud of having done what I’ve done. Very proud. But. I do take issue – and this does go to the heart of this book, which is why I have to say it—with anyone who truly feels it’s a 100 percent down to them.”
