Somehow we have gotten to the point where a family earning $150,000 needs assistance from government raising their children, or perhaps that’s the new poverty level.
This administration is no less dangerous to the foundations of the United States, than the previous, it just appears kinder and gentler and more effective in creating a society dependent on the handouts from politicians, fiscal irresponsibility notwithstanding.
There is no regard for debt, deficits, the creation of unlimited future liabilities, the fact Congress has long ignored acting repsonsibly managing the major social programs we have in place now or that projections and assumptions as to cost and funding are manipulated to tell the story needed to sell a new spending plan.
Do Americans truly believe we can keep all this going while being paid for by only 1% or even 10% of fellow citizens (or not paid for at all) or that higher taxes on corporations will not have adverse consequences on them?
Is progess really taking from some citizens, filtering the money through governemnt and giving it to whichever voting block is loudest in its demand for more?
I get a kick out of Sen Warren harping on the “rigged” system because big business and the wealthy use their influence to manipulate the tax code and other laws to their advantage.
Well, the people they manipulate are the same people many Americans want to be in charge of handing out the government largess they will be dependent on.
What do you want from government, or more accurately from fellow citizens of this and future generations? Free day care, free college, all student debt forgiven, higher Social Security benefits, higher COLAs, higher minimum age, more and free health care benefits .. or maybe lower taxes too?
According to Sen Sanders, the the USA is the wealthiest country on earth so we can do it all or more accurately, Bezos, Zuckerberg, Buffett, Gates and friends can do it for us.
