    If Sen. Elizabeth Warren has her way, Americans will be paying a lot more in taxes. In fact, she is such a radical leftist, Warren wants the government to take at least 70 percent of your hard-earned money. It’s official: She is a Scandinavian-style socialist.

    In an interview with CNBC, Fauxcohontas claimed that the first thing Democrats should do if they retake Congress is to rescind President Trump’s tax cuts. According to Warren, only the “crumbs” of the $1.5 trillion tax reform package are going to middle- and working-class citizens.

    Yet, Warren says she would do more than roll back Trump’s tax cuts. She wants to impose a massive tax hike. How high? She wants American businesses, corporations and the wealthy to pay at least a 50 percent federal tax rate.

    “Here’s how I look at budgets and taxes,” she said. “A lot of people think they’re just numbers; they’re not. They are the expression of our values.”

    Hence, when pressed about what the right top marginal rate should be, Warren stressed 50 percent ought to be the minimum, while 90 percent may be a little too high.

    Yeah. She will need a DNA test before she runs for office. That's all I gotta say.

    When the hell was that? Heres another one who has lost her mind.

    Right now they are playing to the millennial's who don't know much, dont want to know much, and can be easily bought by promising free things to, "which every adult knows they will never get". Empty promises and Lies can works with kids who don't know any better.

    I love using this example as to who they are targeting with this nonsense. Its so apt.

    I'm guessing no self-respecting Native American nation or tribe would embrace Elizabeth Warren as one of their own... :whistling:

    The problem with a socialist ‘weathly’ starts at about $50k annual income.

    Plus those government teepees aren’t cheap.

    The Democrats and the socialists just don’t get it. They personalize tax cuts and tax increases. They don’t get the macroeconomics. When you levy higher taxes on companies and rich individuals, you’re taking capital out of the system, the economy shrinks, and the tax base is reduced. The rich don’t lose their yachts, their private jet, their 20,000 square foot home. The rich take their money off the table, i.e. they invest less. Companies have less profit to reinvest and grow their businesses.

    What Warren and the Democrats are preaching is exactly the reason why Venezuela is in the predicament they find themselves today. It’s sheer lunacy.

    Right, but the Democrats don’t have to raise taxes to be successful, all they have to do is demonize the rich, get elected then become rich and powerful.

    This is why the establishment HATES President Trump, because he actually is doing what he campaigned on.

    How dare he !

    Well thats what they want. They want massively rich people, such as them who already have their cash, and for the rest they want dependent on Govt. . That way they can control them and their lives while the serfs are left at the mercy of the rich Democrat ruling class.

    Disarm them, make sure they only earn $15 an hour, and give them all free medical that ain't worth a darn. Thats their vision, why else do you think Obama went all ga-ga over Cuba? People on the Govt. nipple are obedient voters you see.

    Well said! Everyone knows about the income "bell curve". In the middle, people are making $50k or so with the curve tapering off in both directions. Socialism takes the middle 90% and shoves them to the low end of the curve and "takes care of them". But the elitist rich, worth tens of millions, retain their wealth and stay on top by currying favor with the authoritarian government.
