I've been posting about Bernie on Facebook and posted the tax infographic for Medicare For All yesterday. I got this question, and wanted to be sure I answered it to the best of my ability for the campaign's sake and to give the most information possible.

Question: "How exactly is he going to make this work? Until there is a detailed financial plan it's just a pipe dream, smoke and mirrors."

Twitter Wouldn’t Have Banned Political Ads if AOC Had Endorsed Warren (Which She Would Never)

So now that fans are making ads for candidates they love, and those ads are going viral, BAM! Door to the airwaves slams shut. Right. And will they also censor free speech about people getting excited to hear free concerts at rallies? This is just wrong. Corporations are people but people’s voices aren’t voices? Fix the first first and come talk to us about the second. This is China.

What would Bernie Sanders do?

I made this song based on the South Park song back in 2016. I am by no means a great singer :P. But here it is, I think the lyrics are still relevant. If ANYONE who is actually a musician wants to re-record it themselves, do a cover or even rewrite the lyrics so they fit 2020 better, feel free to do so, it's all about spreading the message any way we can.

Make no mistake: Medicare for All would cut taxes for most Americans

https://i.redd.it/cp1dfylqkou31.jpg

This is the context needed to understand the current debate at the heart of the presidential elections. Proposals such as Medicare for All would replace the current privatized poll tax by taxes based on ability to pay. Some believe that it would result in a big tax increase for America’s middle class. But the data show that it would, in fact, lead to large income gains for the vast majority of workers.

Take again the case of a secretary earning $ 50,000 in wage and currently contributing $ 15,000 through her employer to an insurance company. With universal health insurance, her wage would rise to $ 65,000 – her full labor compensation. With an income tax of 6% – which, if applied to a base large enough, would be enough to fund universal health insurance – she would have to pay about $ 4,000 more in tax. But the net gain would be enormous: $ 11,000. Instead of taking home $ 50,000, the secretary would take home $ 61,000.

What would Bernie’s policies do to our GDP?

I know I am going to get some bias posting this here but oh well. I am asking this just as a personal question to anyone who many know: what effect would Bernie’s policies have on GDP? I’m asking you to be as non bias as possible. The reason I ask is because America’s position as the worlds largest economy is quite important to me especially given recent events involving China and some others. Also being the worlds #1 consumer market means many international products are catered to American wants and I’d like that to remain.

The main policies I am talking about are: – free healthcare – fee college – expanded public housing programs – wealth tax – increased income tax – increased payroll tax – increased investment tax – removed FICA tax limit – 20% of shares paying dividends to employees – 45% codetermination – increased union strength – $ 15 minimum wage

Just to ease any concerns, I am not attacking Bernie, I actually am quite favorable towards many of his policies. This is just something I am curious about. My gut reaction is that it would help because a more powerful middle class is key to growth, but then again that is a LOT of tax when you add them all up.
