Do people ever stop to think about how much the population has grown since the time they always cite when Americans paid higher taxes?

We're already generating the same amount of revenue as that time just because the sheer number of people now paying into it.

The problem is we have corporate loopholes and politicians like Bernie Sanders that are stealing our money and/or at the very least squandering it due to their massive levels of incompetence.

Look it up. There is a distinctive pattern of nearly every state with highest tax burdens suffering the worst infrastructure in the Union. A nice big alarm bell should be ringing in your head right now.

Can we please just stop talking about these absolute frauds and disgraces to the human race like Bernie two bit crime lord Sanders?

Seeing how how Congress thought so highly of ACA they exempted themselves from it don't bring that tired trope around again hoping it will catch on.

My family has spent well over $20K in the past two years on health related matters. We would gladly have paid a small percentage of our income to have been covered under single payer universal healthcare. We would have more money in our pocket now and I will never complain about that.

Under the British system you would pay $3800 per year per person. How many people are in your family? If you have 2 people in your family you are paying $15,100. 3 people is $22,680. How many in yours?

Listened to Mark Levin on Patriot XM Radio last night. He read all of Bernies promises and guess where it comes from the Soviet Unions 1936 Constitution. Have a read of chapter 10.

Adopted December 1936



CHAPTER X

Hammer & Sickle

ARTICLE 118. Citizens of the U.S.S.R. have the right to work, that is, are guaranteed the right to employment and payment for their work in accordance With its quantity and quality.

ARTICLE 121. Citizens of the U.S.S.R. have the right to education. This right is ensured by universal, compulsory elementary education; by education, including higher education, being free of charge; by the system of state stipends for the overwhelming majority of students in the universities and colleges; by instruction in schools being conducted in the native Ianguage, and by the organization in the factories, state farms, machine and tractor stations and collective farms of free vocational, technical and agronomic training for the working people.

ARTICLE 122. Women in the U.S.S.R. are accorded equal rights with men in all spheres of economic, state, cultural, social and political life.

Any direct or indirect restriction of the rights of, or, conversely, any establishment of direct or indirect privileges for, citizens on account of their race or nationality, as well as any advocacy of racial or national exclusiveness or hatred and contempt, is punishable by law.

ARTICLE 124. In order to ensure to citizens freedom of conscience, the church in the U.S.S.R. is separated from the state, and the school from the church. Freedom of religious worship and freedom of antireligious propaganda is recognized for all citizens.

These civil rights are ensured by placing at the disposal of the working people and their organizations printing presses, stocks of paper, public buildings, the streets, communications facilities and other material requisites for the exercise of these rights.
ARTICLE 126. In conformity with the interests of the working people, and in order to develop the organizational initiative and political activity of the masses of the people, citizens of the U.S.S.R. are ensured the right to unite in public organizations--trade unions, cooperative associations, youth organizations,' sport and defense organizations, cultural, technical and scientific societies; and the most active and politically most conscious citizens in the ranks of the working class and other sections of the working people unite in the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (Bolsheviks), which is the vanguard of the working people in their struggle to strengthen and develop the socialist system and is the leading core of all organizations of the working people, both public and state.

Treason to the country--violation of the oath of allegiance, desertion to the enemy, impairing the military power of the state, espionage is punishable with all the severity of the law as the most heinous of crimes.

AND WE ALL KNOW HOW THOSE PROMISES TURNED OUT!!! LOL

Sounds like you need to increase that amount by $7000 a year. Based on what the NHS in the UK says, a family of four will pay about $28,000-$30,000 a year in taxes. I currently pay about $2500 a year for my insurance which also includes a dental plus plan and an awesome eyecare plan. The family plan would be $7500.

I wouldn't mind paying more for social programs; I don't want to pay more for Government bloat.

If Sanders first fixes the waist we can talk about social programs.

If they are going to give me Universal basic income, why do they need to tax the income I already have ? Remember they want that and comprehensive health care and they want to fix climate change. But again they have to take away all my money in order to give me health care ? And how were they going to pay for my car my food my home etc? Oh wait that’s so they can give it to illegals.

Which is better, to create an environment where you can be totally self reliant, or one where you totally depend on the state? I prefer the first option. The democrats want us desperate and dependent on the govt for everything. Go to the worst neighborhoods in the country and see how that has worked out for those people Bernie.

Apologies if already stated, but a government big enough to give you everything you need is big enough to take everything you have.

Social programs *are* government bloat. You can't have a social program without the bureaucracy needed to make sure it's all run right. So you end up paying far more for all the bureaucrats and their wonderful benefits and nice fat early retirements.
