This is very important to me and I'd think for most Americans as well. Here's new information added to Bernie's website describing how he will pay for all his proposals




Rebuild America Act: Sen. Sanders has proposed a $1 trillion plan to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and put 13 million Americans to work.

Paid for by making corporations pay taxes on all of the “profits” they have shifted to the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens, which the Congressional Research Services estimates may currently create losses that approach $100 billion annually, and other loopholes.

Are these like the "shovel ready" jobs that Obama promised?

And 13 million seems like a lot of people. That's almost 4% of the total population.

And 100B divided by 13M workers is not even 8K a year salary, they'll be huge deficits if he's using these numbers.

It's definitely expensive!!


His plans exceed even what Obama has spent. Or looted from the treasury I should say..

How about we get that money BEFORE we spend it for a change.

Until the cash is in hand it's just another BS campaign promise.

The problem with politicians ( even Bernie ) is that they will start spending the money not only before they have it but, before they are even sure it's there or they can even get it.

Feel that Bern....in your pocket. Folks, he is the exact same as all of the rest. He says there are no PAC's and there are. He uses non-profits and campaign money to funnel cash to his family and friends. Nothing on his website talks about how he will save will lower taxes. Only spend more. Make college free. Stick it to the man....

But hey, he wants to push LGBT rights so he must be a true liberal.

What super PAC's are you referring to?

Or critical thought, apparently. I mean why assume a full time job, or work year around? Projects take certain man-hours, having a start and end period. Why assume all 13 million will be working at the same time?

...but let's just shoot down the guy who is trying to reign in the immoral actions of the 1%ers, while simultaneously funneling their misdeeds into reviving our failing infrastructure.

Sheesh!

The ones that his staff says does not accept money from but he does not tell them to not run the ads. The largest is a Nursing Union.

That's his plan, we get the money thru taxes, not loans. He's actually against the banks and I would wager against insane borrowing while also cutting back on expensive things like the Military Industrial Complex. After you finish reading this post the US just spent $250k on the Middle Eastern conflicts.

I'm digging on this Socialist math.

Let's see ... I'll 'try' to collect $100B ... and I'll spend $1T.

As long as I can sell that to the first few, the smart folks who come along asking where the other $900B is coming from will be drowned out by the cheering and fanfare.

I can feel the Bern. Can you?

They could but he'll still go after them. Even Hilary has jumped on that train going after tax evaders but I doubt she'd really follow thru with it if she became prez.

How did you miss this? It's 100B a year, man. The projects will not complete in a year.

What is going on here? LOL

Obama tried to coax the companies last year.

Some kind of tax break/relief.

I think it must have failed.

No news or hyperbole.

LOL ... See what I mean. You think that money's gonna get taxed twice? Do you think the fat cat corps are gonna repeat a 'mistake'?

And how quickly will those companies cease to become American companies and doing any business in America?

If they want to avoid paying, they will.

So let me get this straight. You would rather stick to a defeatist attitude then elect a commander in chief who would try to clean up the mess we're in.

Got it. Thanks for making your message clear.

No matter which party leader is picked, they're still not on 'our' side.

I think we oughta get SO to do a poll and see what % of ATS wants to get rid of all political threads until after the elections.

And that's about the worst you can say about Sanders and damn you did your best but tell me, are you talking about Super Pacs because if you are you're smearing some BS since he does not accept them and when they go rogue he demands they cease. Trump did the same thing recently to Super Pacs supporting him. Like Sanders he doesn't accept them.

I gotta laugh because Sanders isn't funneling money and hiring friends and family is not only not illegal and all campaigns run this way but it's also how the world works. Granted he's looking to tax the wealthy/Wall Street and have them pay for college but His payroll tax for baby leave will only cost the average American less than two dollars a week.
