  • To implement you overthrow the current system and establish a communistic state like in Venezuela. Amazing how people can be lead to believe that taxing the rich is how you balance a budget. They only pay most of the taxes now while about 50% of the population pay nothing (assume that describes some of the responders to this question). Have any of you EVER been employed by a poor person or one that pays no income tax because he falls in to the low tax or no tax 50%? Of course not. Do you understand that the military is there to allow you the privilege to safely bitch about your country? That fine young people have given their lives so that you can bleat your progressive dribble and tout rags like Rolling Stone that always call for socialistic changes of one kind or another Learn U.S. history from root sources...your public school education is showing.

    And that is why progressives should not be in office and people who vote for them should not be allowed to vote.

    YOU are deciding who gets to vote now? Do you want to start your own country where you can be the Dictator, the Decider? Your conceit is appalling.

  • We are a democracy. If you like HAVING an opinion it needs to stay that way. If you don't, you really don't matter, cause you just said you LIKE being told what to think.......

  • Not perfect but it is the most practical proposal I have seen and the only one likely to get the US back on the path to economic and employment growth . The massive investment program is necessary as without government action, the private sector will wallow in inaction as for them there is more momey to be mad in speculation in commodites than in creating jobs.

    Carp and Anna , your arrogance and ignorance knows no bounds . Venezuela is not a communist state and it supplies about 12% of your oil . Like Donald Trump, Chavez has a big mouth , but he had the common sense to kick out big oil, whatever his faults. And the notion that people who disagree with your extremist views shoud not be allowed to vote can only be meant to suggest that you want a dictatorship of the majority by a minority with the same ridiculous views as you hold . Dream on , it won't happn
