Why do people want radical socialists to lead the nation? When socialists say they are going to tax the wealthy, they are not being honest. The wealthy soon become the middle class. Bernie was going to tax the evil millionaires and billionaires who don’t pay their fair share but he’s changed that somewhat.
Bernie Sanders is already calling people making $250,000 a year “wealthy”. In other words, they are his targeted group.
Martin O’Malley, another Democratic Socialist, promised to raise taxes on millionaires, but he couldn’t raise enough money to accommodate his excessive spending, so he raised taxes on people making over $100,000 a year. He raised taxes on everything – gasoline, tobacco, nursing homes, internet sales, even water and sewers!. By the time he was done, there were 23% fewer millionaires living in Maryland.
Who really believes these statists have the right to decide who is making too much money?
In May of last year, Bernie said 90% taxation isn’t too much. He’s worried about the immorality of people not working but has no concerns about outright theft in their name.
