You think some should make more not working than they were when working is fair ? You are dumber than my pet rock


Maybe that speaks for itself regarding hourly wages, and perhaps that's the problem that needs to be properly addressed.

Don't worry, Donniecholoroquine will have NATO paying for our military in no time, just like Mexico/the wall and China/tariffs.

We've been in debt so long that it is a conservative position to keep bouncing checks.

Just at the speed limit.

Did you watch the video?

At 7:50 they lay out what they think should be done.
At 8:20 they highlight warrens wealth tax as a good option.

Yeah. Cutting taxes on the wealthy really helped.

They really needed the money.

I'm ok with cutting taxes in general.

But not when we aren't cutting spending.

I saw an infographic on how much money we give the rest of the world.

We could repatriate that cash and pay for domestic needs. We could end Afghanistan and save ourselves trillions more. Congress don't wanna and that's bipartisan.

Trump ran on everything democrats say they'd do and never did.

He's doing the things they always talked about and never did.

Criminal justice reform is a good example of that.

I happen to think that we, as the most powerful nation on the planet, have certain obligations. You know, power...responsibility.

While those responsibilities are often misdirected, it does not mean that they do not exist. What is spent in Afghanistan is a drop in a very deep bucket. Could it be better spent? Probably. Domestically? Probably not.

I thought that was one of the things trump campaigned on.

I wonder if the crash will wait till bidens elected.

It is a good option. Because how much money does one really need? It's ridiculous to think that one needs billions of dollars.

As someone who spent 1/4 of my military career in Afghanistan, I can tell you that we could rebuild the whole interstate system for the amount of money we've spent there.

Edit:

We got nothing for what we spend except bloodshed and debt.

Ok yes.

If there is a ubi.
In fact if there is a ubi we're going to have to rethink taxes altogether.
Be real silly for the government to give us money then take part of it right back each time?

If we have more money and more time we can make better plans for our lives.
It that world together with universal healthcare , medicaid and ss seem redundant.

The USSR did the same. Like I said, the funds could be better applied. Overseas.

Remember infrastructure week? Good times.

Indeed.

I was in the Army...Tell me about it.

Or we all turn into lazy POS's in a very short while and the hardcore conservatives are right.

I hope it builds a wall..
Would have been handy during the pandemic...

How about we let trump explain what he meant instead of jumping to stupid conclusions..

Raising taxes on the silly, ridiculously, wealthy instead of reducing them?


Tax them like crazy...lets say 100%. That would bring in about 500 billion more per year... not enough you say...lets tax more people then, lets say if you make 150k you are wealthy...that would bring in a lot of money....
