...Abe Lincoln revisited...

"Confiscating wealth from those who have earned it, inherited it, or got lucky is never going to help 'the poor.' Poverty isn't caused by some people having more money than others, just as obesity isn't caused by McDonald's serving super-sized orders of French fries. Poverty, like obesity, is caused by the life choices that dictate results."

John Tucci (whoever the wise gent is) as quoted in The Wall Street Journal 20.08.08
