    Basically it starts with people desiring to use a product and demanding the government do something for them about it. Then when the government acts somehow things are getting worse and more and more government action is needed until the only solution liberals have left is a government takeover.

    The Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act, would allow more than 25 million people to refinance their student loans to today’s lower interest rates of less than 4 percent. Warren paid for the bill with the “Buffet Rule” — a minimum 30 percent income tax payment from people who earn between $1 million and $2 million.

    I fully agree with that tax, taxes need to scale on wealth since a minority hold the majority of wealth, it's a simple concept.

    Oh, that's clearly happening in countries with EXTREMELY socialist policies and thriving economies.

    If everyone gets equal protection then everyone should pay the same rate. It's a simple concept that the market and everyone except the government has used since forever.

    This is where this fails. A minority hold the majority of the wealth, the middle and lower class hold a tiny minority, assume taxes are "equal" for everyone, at a percentage rate, well, you can see where this falls apart, if not, I will gladly explain it.

    If you think democrats care more about the poor and middle class in this country than the republicans do then you are sadly mistaken. Yes there are some democrats who actually care more about the poor and middle class other than trying to use them for votes, There are also republicans that way too.But policitians in both parties don't give a rats ass about the poor and middle class.All those chamber of commerce democrats and republicans care about is sucking the dick of the rich businesses and corporations to line their own pockets and keep themselves in power.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
