    Sanders says it pays for itself in 15 years. I'd like professional economists to look at it.

    What I look at is the alternative, which is global starvation, water wars, much of the world's cities under water and possibly extinction. From my back-of-the-envelope calculation, that's more than $16 trillion.

    Plus, Monopoly is a badly-designed game that people shouldn't waste their time playing. So those morons are going to buy a bad rip-off of a bad game in order to stick it to the libs. Okay then.

    And what realistic figure would that be?

    Biden's plan is $1.7 trillion over 10 years, much less than we spend on military.
    So we're gonna spend a trillion plus on this and the military?

    Also, the plan creates jobs which puts money back into the economy, so it's misleading to call it a "cost".
    What makes you so certain all this will create jobs, as you say?

    Unless we reverse what is happening in the climate, the planet might not be habitable by the 22nd century.
    Are you getting this from AOC?

    Well, because the real number is almost impossible to calculate, and so $16T is a down-payment.
    It is all for naught though, no one, by and large, cares. #sad

    One of the Chance cards in that version of the game is burn your Nike sneakers that you already paid for.

    Yes, and Clue was devised to inform people of the dangers of ropes and candlesticks.

    Show me the Democrats who don't have the same ideas and I'll show you the Democrats without a snowballs chance in the primary.

    I'm not sure what point it is you are trying to make other than that capitalists take jokes better than socialists do...

    reminds me of 1961 when republicans insisted that nixon should have been elected because JFK was too audacious in proposing to land a man on the moon by decade's end
