I don't own a business.
I do have an income tax liability of over 40% between state/federal/local, and we are not making anywhere near six figures. Somehow, the idea of tax the rich always trickles down to us.
Free college is not free. If you pay taxes, you will be paying for it. It's that simple.
Even if your taxes don't go directly to it, they have to make up the shortfall elsewhere. Taxes are never a closed loop.

That was sarcasm right??? I feel almost silly asking but I'm not real familiar with you so I have to ask. You're laying it on pretty heavy in that post so I'm assuming sarcasm but it's not always easy to tell around here.
Pick an issue, any issue, and Bernie and the majority of American people are likely to be in lockstep.
Financial reform, income disparity, health care policy, jobs, foreign policy, economic policy, climate change, environmental protection --
even on the so-called wedge issues such as gay marriage, abortion etc – for the most part the majority of voters agree with Bernie.
We know this agreement is real, because Mr. Sanders speaks in clear, unequivocal language about what his positions are on the issues of the day.
Where’s Hillary Clinton on the Issues?
In contrast, we have Hillary, the cipher candidate, who won’t answer questions;
who equivocates on the issues;
and who speaks in vague generalities and stunningly calculated language that is designed to say nothing.
Of course, her end game is to try to con progressive voters into supporting her without alienating her corporate funders.
As a result, her campaign is completely devoid of substance, passion and principles.
For example, when pressed on trade, the best she could come up with was, “listen to Nancy Pelosi,” then followed it up a few days later saying she “…probably” would not vote for it …at this time …” Can you get any squishier?
Just ask outgoing leader of the Communication Workers of America, Larry Cohen, who tried desperately to get a clear stance on Fast Track from Clinton and couldn’t. He’s now backing Bernie.
