I’d love for you to point to any post where I’ve asserted that “pure Socialism is the best policy.”
You can’t, because I haven’t.
I absolutely think that universal healthcare as implemented in various forms by a number of other countries is a far superior model compared to what we have as evidenced by their expenditures and aggregate results.
I absolutely think we could fund all tuition for public higher education institutions in this country simply by using a fraction of the revenues we would otherwise have if it were not for the Trump tax cuts.
So does government. So does the middle class. Even the poor and working class play a part in that they create a demand for goods and services that can be filled. That’s why a program like SNAP has a net positive benefit for every dollar that is spent.
Lowering taxes also results in a windfall of profits that results in a record buyback of stock. That contributed nothing to lower prices or increased wages. It contributed to nothing but rent-seeking. But ultimately, these tax cuts are deficit fueled and will never recoup their loss in revenue. Tax cuts do not pay for themselves. They never have. They never will. And due to the increased deficits, faux fiscal conservatives will start harping on cutting government spending. Which programs will be targeted? Those that disproportionately benefit the poor, working and middle classes.
I’ve never stated government is the solution to all economic issues.
We don’t need any of that. We just need to try and vote it out now. If the trumpers re-elect it, we’ll hold our breath for another 4 years and pray is doesn’t do anything too stupid or hurt this country further.
Also we haven’t seen the actual report. This seems forgotten and bears repeating. We’ve currently got a summary report constructed by someone Trump appointed because he was against this investigation in the first place.
It’s funny - they think this narrowly focused investigation, which resulted in several guilty pleas and prison sentences, would be vindication for all of the awful plain-sight atrocities of this administration thus far? Helsinky? Charlottesville Apologism? Stormy Daniels? It’s an endless parade of garbage. Outright Russian “collusion” was just a grain of sand on this beach.
And for all the gloating and chest thumping there sure is a lot of flagging going on today.
The Mueller report came out and said the Access Hollywood tape is fake and Trump has never told a lie. Is it time for the left to apologize for all the negative coverage they have given the greatest president in history?
