Communism at its finest...They like to call it Progressivism, or Democratic Socialism...No middle class...Rich and poor...And the poor rely on the gov't for everything...The Mayor of New York City even admitted on tv they want to eliminate all private property...You'll have to work but you won't need money...The gov't will provide everything...Food stamps for everyone...Rent vouchers...And the worst part is they will make all immigration legal and we'll be infiltrated with muzlims like they are in Europe...We're already getting American hating muzlims in Congress...We had muzlims running for Governors...Democrats WILL vote them in...

House Budget Chairman John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) has
announced that the forthcoming budget blueprint will call for a 33 percent corporate income tax rate by hiking the rate from 21 percent to 28 percent. This would make the U.S. a less competitive place to do business and make the U.S. statutory rate higher than many developed competitors.
State corporate taxes average 6 percent across the U.S, so this planned tax hike would give the U.S. an average top corporate rate of 34 percent.
The current combined corporate rate across the 36 member Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) is currently 23.7 percent.
This proposed tax hike would make the U.S. rate higher than major competitors such as the United Kingdom (19 percent), China (25 percent), Canada (26.8 percent), Germany (29.8 percent), and Ireland (12.5 percent).
"Hiking the tax rate on American businesses will kill jobs, lower wages, and reduce new investment in America," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. "Why do the Democrats want to damage American competitiveness and job creation?"
Bold is mine.
So democrats have established they don't want border security.
They've already attacked gun rights.
They've supported tearing down statues so we know where they stand on free expression.
Now they want to raise taxes.
Not really surprized. But I had been tongue-in-cheek when I stated that they probably would raise taxes.
I had no idea that they hate us having our money so much!

It's too bad Republicans won't allow a couple of these extremely loony Democrat ides to be enacted. The Fall 2020 elections would GLORIOUS for Republicans. Then on 1/1/2021, reverse the polices Dims used to commit party suicide.
