Yes, Bernie Sanders really just said Americans would be “delighted” to pay more in taxes? He’s not kidding…
The Democratic Socialist wants freebies for everyone and he wants YOU to pay for them.
He wants free college, healthcare and a $15 minimum wage.
Just like any socialist, he just wants to raise taxes thinking it will pay for the billions it would cost for the freebies he wants. He’s wrong!
Bernie Sanders on paying for socialism:
“People in this country would be delighted to pay more in taxes.”
It makes sense that Bernie is most popular with the 18-24 year-olds.
A recent response by Jeffrey Folks to the socialist comparison of the 20’s Depression to 2019:
“This comparison is commonplace among progressives, who seem to think that the mere mention of “late 1920s” is enough to stampede the public into demanding progressive government interventions. In this case, it amounts to extortion: share the wealth, or we’ll have another Great Depression.”
Folks is correct about his solution for income inequality and it isn’t raising taxes:
“There is a solution to income inequality, but it is not income redistribution. The solution is for young people to be told they must work hard to achieve a more equal income. Pretending government can ensure income equality by “more widely distributing” income is not merely a lie — it is complicity in spoiling the chances of millions of young people just starting out in life.”
The rainbows and unicorns crowd believes all you need to do is throw more money at a problem. That’s not how the real world works.
Here’s to hoping that the young people come to their senses before the 2020 election.
