Right Wing News reports Bernie Sanders says he’ll raise everybody’s taxes a “damn lot higher” than they are now:
Bernie Sanders is an economic illiterate; that much is obvious to everyone who is not, as Sanders’ supporters are, an economic illiterate the way he is.
But his economic illiteracy is not what’s worst about Sanders – as destructive and disqualifying as it is. What’s worst about Sanders is the evil of Nazi- and Soviet-style punitive government that he represents. Sanders and his cult support the active theft of private property in service of redistributive, utopian aims, and he’s unapologetic about it.
Bernie Sanders says the rich in America will be paying “a damn lot higher” in taxes than they are right now if he is elected president.
Sanders, appearing on ABC’s “This Week” evaded host George Stephanopoulos’s questions about what that rate would be or to who it would exactly apply to, but Sanders insisted “we are going to have a tax on Wall Street speculation… [and] we are going to ask Trump and his billionaire friends to pay more taxes.”
Sanders also indicated that he will end the “loophole that allows large corporations to stash their money in the Cayman Islands and in some cases avoid paying all federal income taxes”
Sanders also suggested that he would “raise the estate tax so that Trump and his billionaire friends and their families will pay more in taxes. Another proposal that Sanders suggested was that he would put a “tax on Wall Street speculation.”
And don’t get confused – he’s not just going to go after the rich…
Sanders also said that he would increase the payroll tax. When Stephanopoulos insisted that an increase in the payroll tax would harm everyone, not just the wealthy, Sanders agreed with that analysis.
Sanders, thankfully, is too stupid to actually get elected president – he proved that at last week’s debate, when he gave away the Hillary Clinton e-mail issue when it’s the only real path to the Democrat nomination.
But Nazi- and Soviet-style socialism – and the jackboot is the only way to actually enforce the kind of taxation and wealth redistribution Sanders fantasizes about, make no mistake about it – is a philosophy rooted in abject stupidity. It’s no surprise that a profoundly stupid man like Sanders is its most prominent advocate.
