His main selling point to Democrats is that he has the courage of the party’s current convictions. His animating concern is income equality, and his solution is much higher taxes. He’d raise income tax rates, lift the income cap on the payroll tax and impose a death tax surcharge, for starters.

Is this the way you see America, as Greece? Do you believe higher taxes will close the income gap? Do you want a country where your financial security and total income is based on government largess and “free” stuff paid for by other Americans?
