The speech was all liberal Robin Hood rubbish - steal from the rich and give to the poor. What I thought was the best speech last night was the GOP response given by Joni Ernst. She looked scared sh!tless and her story from childhood schooldays akin to wearing newspapers for shoes and walking 15 miles to school, uphill both ways. She looked wooden and plastic, like Mitt Romney in a wig and lipstick. Face it folks, the Dems and Reps are a two-headed snake. We need a third party candidate in '16 or it will be at least six more years of this BS.
Robbing from the poor (and middle class) and giving to the rich is more your style, eh?
The problem with this type of proposal is it does not take into account where these people live, nor the cost of living in any area. $500K to someone in Manhattan is like $75K to someone in a rural town.
