How do we pay for all the crazy crap that Dems want.

Tell me exactly how we pay for all that shi t.

 

Bernie Sanders opponents criticize his policy proposals because of what they might cost.  Pete Buttigieg estimates the cost at 50 trillion dollars and Larry Summers, economic advisor for Barack Obama put it at 60 trillion.  The mere mention of the numbers is intended to convey a message of grandiosity.  But focusing only on the costs of doing something about these problems without mentioning the costs of doing little or nothing is misleading.

 

The problems Bernie is addressing desperately need fixing:

 

A Green New Deal might be expensive but doing nothing about climate change will almost certainly cost far more. California is already burning, the midwest and south are flooding, New England is eroding, Florida is sinking.  If we don't launch something as bold as a Green New Deal, we'll end up spending far more than the cost of prevention.

 

Medicare for All will cost a lot, but the price of doing nothing about America’s increasingly dysfunctional healthcare system will soon be in the stratosphere.

 

Investing in universal childcare, public higher education and woefully outdated and dilapidated infrastructure will be expensive too, but the cost of not making these investments would be astronomical.

 

A related criticism of Sanders and Warren is that they haven't come up with a way to pay for their proposals.  But their wealth taxes would go a long way to pay for their plans.  But even if only a small part of Sanders/Warren's plans are covered, it is imperative to spend more for the good of our Nation and the World.

 

We can no longer pretend that climate change, a wildly dysfunctional healthcare system and a yawning deficit in public investment pose insignificant challenges.  Doing nothing or doing too little will make them far worse. Obsessing about the cost of addressing them without acknowledging the cost of failing to address them is dangerously irresponsible.

Illinois:

Adult-Use Cannabis Sales Hit $40 Million; First Month

February 4, 2020

 

"Recreational marijuana stores in Illinois sold almost $40 Million worth, during the state’s first month of legal sales.

 

That is far more than the $6.5 Million in recreational marijuana sold in Michigan, which began sales a month earlier than Illinois’ Jan. 1 launch.

 

Illinois also sold more marijuana in its first month of rec sales than Massachusetts, Oregon, Colorado or Nevada."

Not crazy to want healthcare for our children & grandchildren. 

When current employees lose their jobs for health reasons, they also lose their healthcare insurance. That is just unjust.

 

We Americans need a Public

Health Option backed by our U.S. Government that we won't lose if we move to another state or lose our job for ANY reason, a Public Health Option for all of us, because we all deserve a secure retirement and health care in our senior years, and we can ensure that most easily as a nation, rather than trying to rely on individual companies that too often file bankruptcy while giving their grossly overpaid CEO's enormous "GOLDEN PARACHUTE RETIREMENTS," & at the same time screwing the rest of their employees in their elderly years. It is easier for all of US to have our Government provide our retirement income and health assistance than it is for those who use our labor to enrich themselves to provide US with pensions and health care, since owners & bosses change ALL the time.

 

And finally, We must not let a Public Health Option be based on FLAT TAXES, for it would surely fail; also, if "corporations are ppl," then for every employee who chooses the PHO, the corporations must ante up what they would have spent on Employer-Based insurance.

Marginal graduated taxation all the way to the "tippy tops"

 
❤, because we can no longer afford to keep stealing the few discretionary $ of the middle-class while the selfishly overpaid CEOs skate on 99.9% of their discretionary income!

According to the National Association of State Budget Officers (NASBO) State Expenditure Report, in 2014 the Grand Canyon State received 43.5 percent of all its revenue from the federal government. Mississippi is a close second (43.3 percent) with Tennessee third (40.9) and Michigan fourth (40.1).

For Fiscal Year 2014 Arizona received $12.8 billion, up from $12bn a year earlier. Almost half of the federal funds, $6.2bn, go to Medicaid. SCHIP is another big-ticket item, as is K-12 education and transportation.

Ah, climate change=wealth redistribution 

 

Single payer= wealth redistribution 

 

Eliminating the cap on payroll taxes=wealth redistribution 

 

Literally every single policy democrats support is nothing but taking from successful people and handing to drug addicts, idiots and the entire subclass democrats created literally addicted and dependent on state aid. 
 

Pathetic what the left has become.

Let's put Bernie In The White House !!!

 

NO ONE HAS ASKED FOR GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE I WANT SINGLE PAYER INSURANCE FOR MY TAX DOLLARS.

 

I DON'T WANT MY TAX DOLLARS PAYING:

 

- FOR PREFERENTIAL TAX CODES FOR THE WEALTHY

- FOR INVADING OTHER COUNTRIES 

- FOR WORLD WIDE OIL CONTROL

- FOR CORPORATE WELFARE

- FOR TRUMP DEFENSE LAWYERS

- FOR A WALL 

- FOR SPLITTING UP FAMILIES AND LOCKING UP CHILDREN

- FOR PRIVATIZATION FUNDING AND GUARANTEED PRIVATIZATION PROFITS

- FOR SHORING UP THE MEDICAL INSURANCE INDUSTRY

- FOR BAILING OUT CORRUPT FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

- ETC ETC ETC

 

IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THE USA GOVERNMENT COULD WELL AFFORD SINGLE PAYER INSURANCE FOR ALL OF WE TAXPAYERS SIMPLY BY

ELIMINATING ALL OF THE ABOVE = RESPONSIBLY MANAGING THE PEOPLE'S TAX DOLLARS
