‘Dear my leftist friends: the people who are mad about Trump aren’t literally insane’
The free tuition, welfare, and all the other crap you want is never going to come out of those evil rich people’s pockets. Because—as you complain, this time correctly, yourselves—the super-wealthy can afford all kinds of tax shelters. You can hike their tax rate up as far as you like, but GE is still not going to fund the brunt of your free lunch.
I’ve owned a small business, population one, for years, and I do my own taxes. Even if a business follows the law to the letter, there’s a giant break percentage-wise around 100 grand in profits. Proportionally, even without Swiss bank accounts, people who net less than that are going to be paying for your Bernie bucks. He’ll make the rich guys pay, you say? Bullshit. He’ll try for six months and then someone will pay him off. You think he can resist? He’s been living off others all his life.
