What these wannabe Dem presidents plan for u$
So, let’s check a sampling of these plans, according to Bloomberg:

Slap a new tax on banks with more than $50 million in assets. Kamala Harris especially likes this one, which would bring in an estimated $61 billion. Banks are big and bad, unless you want or have home mortgage.

Increase by 88 percent the amount of income Americans must pay Social Security taxes on from the current $132,900 up to at least a quarter-million. Maybe more. Yeh, sure, some middle-class families will be caught in the cash net. But see, silly person who doesn’t understand how government works, they’re spending all the current Social Security tax income already. So, they need more for new programs, probably another $800+ billion.

People are making too much money from investments that can help create jobs. So, jack the capital gains by 50 percent to 30 percent. That might rake in more than $600 billion, assuming it doesn’t stop much investing..

And let’s cut into that mortgage interest tax deduction. Too many Americans are owning or buying homes and affording it. That’s worth a good $972 billion at least.

Here’s a good one: Hike the federal tax on a gallon of gasoline by “only” 10 cents, which is actually 65 percent. This should bring in another $170 billion. Sure, it hits regular working folks the hardest, but we all must make financial sacrifices for the greener good. Also, tell town halls the money will pay for infrastructure repairs. That’s a good line. Some Republicans might even go for it, unless they know Grover Norquist.

Oh, and index that enlarged gas tax to inflation so it’ll increase automatically forever and politicians won’t have to wait another 26 years for new revenues.

Finally – well, it’s not really final because there are many other tax ideas – let’s install a value-added tax. This will be a five percent levy on every step of any item’s production process. Europe loves them. Yes, yes, it would hike consumer prices considerably. But it would bring in – are you sitting down? – nearly $6.2 Trillion.
Democrats SAY they want to tax the rich, but it is always the middle class who pays....Democrats do NOT want a middle class. The middle class is independent and not a slave to democrat policies. The poor will vote for food. 0bama started the destruction and Democrats will finish it. Democrats would rather you be a slave than to plan your life on your own terms.

1. So their platform all boils down to

Raise taxes
Increase spending and giveaways
Open borders
Punish productivity
Reward parasites
Give up your air travel, automobiles, air conditioning and beef

Yeah, sounds like a winning plan.

2. Don't forget; License all gun owners, then ban all semi automatic firearms

Or as the gun control fan(atics) say; "It's a good start"

This really sounds more and more like Walter Mondale's "winning" platform in 1984.
