The top twenty percent of earners are responsible for 87% of federal income tax revenue. The top one percent contribute roughly 39%. Bernie Sanders often says that the rich are not paying their “fair share”. How much is “fair”?

I am trying to get a feel for how much Sanders supporters feel the top earners should pay.

How much more do you want the top one percent/twenty percent to pay? The one percent already comprise almost 40% of the nation's income tax revenue while only making 21% of the nation's income.

Will neoliberals ever realize that the public hates their policies?

Their favorite guy was Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, who has an approval rating of 25% and recently had literal rioting in the streets of Paris against his "enlightened neoliberal" (read: regressive tax cut for the wealthy) carbon tax.

Hillary lost to one of the worst candidates ever because he was populist and she was neoliberal.

The public doesn't want deregulated multipayer privatized blah blah blah, they want medicare for all.

The public doesn't want occupational licensing reform, they want a federal job guarantee.

How many more neoliberals have to get completely blown out in elections before they catch on?
