Is there anyway for America to get all of the idealistic benefits of Bernie Sanders without losing half my paycheck?

If we could balance the budget, that'd be a good start


I do not support Sanders. But please tell me you've done enough research of your own to know that you wouldn't lose anywhere *near* half your paycheck. We should be honest about even the things we oppose.


Bright side... More taxation overhead means more work for some of us. 🤓


@OP corporations don't pay taxes... Simply a pass through, shareholders won't eat it but consumers and B2B will


Here's your cake... Go ahead and eat it, too.


Haha well they won't say that. Obama said his healthcare plan would affect the couples making 250k combined income, sure it sounds like a lot, but in the major areas in the country, that's aggressively middle class.


C1: yes, because that Jesus guy sure was a bad egg


Robbing peter to pay paul is possible as long as peter has money left. Programs after programs, social good, good of the people, love, brotherhood - lots of words. Run when you hear anyone denounce money, profit as evil and ask for sacrifice.

If you understand the Denmark taxation system then you understand what it requires to fund Bernie's plans. Whatever happened to the idea of small government?

Well he mentions how too many corporations have all these tax breaks and if they paid it, we could fix all these problems. I wonder if that would be enough. Del1, if u have any facts I'm all ears...not even being sarcastic

The fact is this, OP––the president doesn't have the authority to take half your paycheck, and no candidate in any election has proposed taking half of anyone's paycheck.

Why is it that people demand others to present them facts in these threads? Is going to Google.com so difficult?


@S& Totally not true. Profit is taxed, not revenue.

@McK agree, but those taxes are easily passed on through pricing

@S& Companies price to maximize CM, not after-tax profit.

Does anyone know about the culture at Jabian? Looking at non-travel firms in ATL. Vault ranked them for diversity, but I read a review saying the firm pushes people to post positive ratings online

There is a difference between project performance and year end performance. You can do awesome on a project but still not be a top performer in your practice. Everyone is ranked against each other.
