Call to Action! Would anyone here be interested in registering voters on college campuses?

Donate and support us on Patreon!

New Yorkers must register as Democrats soon to be able to vote in the primaries, and lots of other states have deadlines. If anyone is interested in setting up a table on a college campus (anywhere not just New York) pm me your state and the school you want to help with and I’ll send you more details and help you get set up. I’ll be making a bigger post later tonight or tomorrow. If Bernie runs this will help him immensely, and it’s a great cause regardless.

If the election was today, would Bernie win the popular vote?

Let's just suppose the election happened at the end of this month, do you think Bernie would win the popular vote? How much would the whole shutdown thing and the not-built wall play out for Trump? Do you believe Bernie could win with a bigger difference than Hillary did?

Sorry if this is not the right sub for this kind of question.

If i could vote for Sanders i would but i think his high tax rate could be a danger to productivity.

Bernie Sanders has great plans and i believe most of them can be done without a tax raise.

For example the U.S already pays the most in educational spending and healthcare spending so it is more about making these systems for efficient and paying fairer prices for drugs like Bernie Sanders wants.

But having tax rates go to 50-70% on all income could be harmful to productivity if these sectors are first not made for efficient.

In my opinion the average tax rate the rich should pay should be around 40-50% which is currently 36% i believe so this would result in a tax revenue increase of 11%-38,8% max.

The average tax rate has also been around 40% after the world wars had happen but this is mostly taxed in forms of income tax and not capital gains.

The current capitals gains tax is way to low vs the income tax making the rich pour all of their profits into capital gains tax so they pay less taxes overall.

Some people point out the 91% tax rates that used to be under the Eisenhower administration but in reality the real tax rate after deductions and exemptions was around 41% average(and even a lot of rich paid almost no taxes at all thanks to this)

So that is why the tax reform of 1969 happen which taxes were lowered but tax examinations and such were removed lowering the tax rate overall but increase the total tax base which lead to higher revenue for the government.

The GOP freaks out when Ocasio-Cortez & Bernie suggest a 50%-70% tax rate to pay for medicare for all & a green new deal. That 50-70% margin would ONLY impact 13,000 of the richest families. The GOP is paid to represent the interests of the 13K richest families. We represent the other 300+ million.

A tax of 50%-70% on all income over 10 million would only impact 13,000 of the richest families in the country.

The Republicans are paid to exclusively represent the interests of 13,000 of the world's wealthiest families.

Bernie and Ocasio-Cortez are here to represent the other 330+ million folks in America.

Which do you choose?

What a 2020 would look like ( State by State)

Hi guys so i wanted to have a little fun and lets go over all 50 states for the democratic primary and if Bernie runs what states he could win.

So the people that i think will run are the following

– beto o'rourke: At this point it would be a huge surprise if Beto didnt make a run because the Mainstream media is head over heels for him

– kamala harris : She is the go to pick for the MSM and she is the two favorite things for corporate democrats to boast about. 1 shes a woman and 2 shes black.

– Joe Biden : Along with Harris, Biden is probably the next to the MSM favorite because anything with Obama is something they will hang on to.

Now i dont know if there will be anymore but i will just guess that these will be the 3 people. So lets start going to every state and lets see if Bernie would win that state. Keep in mind we are still a long way from getting information about these states and the primaries themselves but its always fun to guess. Ill go in ABC order.

AL: Wont win.

AK: Could easily win because he won it the last time and heavy red states like this like Bernie and what he has to offer,

AZ: This is a toss up for sure. I will probably say no because people like Biden or Harris could win

AR: Like i mentioned with Alaska, Red states like this can go for more progressive people because of the ideas they have so bernie could easily win here but who knows

CA: If harris is running that could be a tough fight to win. but with the name that bernie has now it could happen.

CO: Bernie would probably easily win here considering how liberal it is.

CT: The northeast could be interesting. id say bernie should win this state considering he only lost by very little against HRC so.

DE: Delaware shares a line with maryland and is very blue but its hard to know if states like maryland and Delaware wouldnt go for someone like Biden.

FL: This will be a very tough state to fight for. I honestly couldnt tell you if bernie would win this state but i would guess no since alot of corporate democrats are from Florida.

GA: I would think Harris could win this state because of the # of the black vote. but considering how much bernie has tried to push his image and help out people in Georgia its hard to know.

HI: Bernie easily wins

ID: Bernie crushed Hillary here so i think people know bernie.

IL: Bernie has a good relationship with voters in the rust belt so i can see his message being well taken by IL voters.

IN: Hard to tell. Like i said Red states like progressive ideas.

IA: We have seen polling saying Biden is winning here, but thats still a year out. I think this is a toss up and its hard to say who would win. probably Biden

KS: Again, Bernie's progressive message is popular with people in the midwest and he could win here.

LA: I dont see bernie doing that well in south considering alot of black corporate democrats will probably try and support someone like Biden or Harris.

ME: Bernie should win here

MD: Maryland is a very rich state even tho its very blue also. I can imagine someone like Biden would probably win here.

MA: Warren's State, I could easily see bernie winning here.

MI: Considering Bernie won here in a massive upset in 2016 i bet voters will remember and vote for him again.

MN: Like i said, alot of states in the upper part will like Bernie and his pro worker stance.

MS: No way

MO: Bernie could easily win most of the rust belt so heres another part of it.

MT: again, red states tend to vote for bernie. but it could go else where so i dont know.

NE: Bernie won here in 2016 and i can see it happening again.

NV: a weird state, its hard to know for sure but id say its a toss up.

NH: won in 2016; basically NH knows bernie

NJ: probably not winning. Its gonna be the same with NY because alot of corporate dems are in this area.

NM: Toss up; Id probably say no, but i can see it happening.

NY: Probably not; NY is a very big state where there are alot of rich democrats and i can probably seeing them voting for someone like harris or Biden.

NC: Probably not

ND: Both Dakotas are very weird because Hillary won one and bernie won the other. I could see bernie winning here but who knows.

OH: Toss up: This will be a hard fight between biden considering Obama won there when he got elected.

OK: Won in 2016, could easily win with the support he had there back then.

OR: Very blue state and fill of progressive; Bernie easily wins here

PA: Another hard state to see who could clearly win. If bernie goes very pro worker then you could see a win

RI: Won in 2016; very blue state so i could see it happening again

SC: probably not

SD: Same with ND, could win but its hard to know. Id probably say yes.

TN: probably not considering its a very mixed bag.

TX: if Beto is running i could see him winning here or Biden.

UT: Bernie easily won here so no problems.

VT: Are you serious? lol

VA: hard to know, MD and VA share alot of ideas in terms of politics. Biden probably wins here.

WA: Deep blue state that loves bernie.

WV: Red state that he won in 2016 and i can see that happening again.

WI: Rust belt state that bernie won in 2016, probably will win again.

WY: Won in 2016, Bernie has a good appeal in the west coast so i can see a win here

Conclusion: So the way i see it, Bernie could easily win a good part of the North east, The Rust Belt and part of Middle america along with the upper north west. The way bernie will win is that he has win states like PA, FL, CA or NY. We will see if those states are different this time. (Typing 50 states was harder than i thought lol)

Anytime someone tells you the LIE that we “can’t afford” medicare for all, remind them that a family of 4 earning $50k/year would save nearly $5k/year. Premiums for the same family are almost $5k/year. Under M4A, the same family would pay $466 for BETTER coverage and no co-pays. #MedicareForAll

Read the plan and EDUCATE folks

Private insurance premiums for a family of 4 are around $ 5,000 per year. And those plans often do not cover dental and vision, and still leave families on the hook for co-pays.

Under Bernie's plan, a family of 4 would pay around $ 466 more per year in taxes (a savings of almost 5,000 per year when you consider how much they are paying in private premiums currently) and would receive WAY BETTER coverage.

You would have to be a moron to refuse better coverage for less money…

Do not let anyone claim we "cannot afford" medicare for all without pushing back against that bullshit.

And as for the tax burden that high earners would see, I'm not about to shed one single tear that someone earning 10 million is going to have to pay 52% in taxes on all income exceeding 10 million. Boo hoo, cry me a river.
