So here comes Bernie Sanders calling for the share the wealth, punish the wealthy, and make more people dependent on government song and dance as he called for a progressive estate tax on millionaires and billionaires during a speech on Saturday.
“We need a tax system which asks the billionaire class to pay its fair share of taxes” he crowed. He never said what the fair share is. According to Mr. Sanders, taxing the top .25 percent of wealthiest Americans is the fairest way to reduce wealth inequality, lower the $17 trillion national debt and pay for investments in infrastructure, education and other neglected national priorities. Taking all their wealth is not going to achieve any of these goals. History proves the only way to accomplish the goals Sanders claims he supports, is to cut spending or grow the economy or both. It is the polices of Sanders and the other Marxist/Progressives that have brought about the problems they now claim they want to solve.
Marxist/Progressives like Sanders are and always have been far more obsessed with their jealousies and contempt for the achiever than they have been concerned about the plight of those they claim to champion.
