Well, now this is amusing. You know how Bernie Sanders and his supporters aren’t really keen on things like math or living in reality? Here’s a report that backs both those assertions. Apparently Bernie’s tax plan doesn’t pay for itself…even after increasing taxes. Because clicking your heels doesn’t just get you the things you want. Sorry, Bernie.
A new analysis of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ tax plan suggests the Democratic candidate might be biting off more than he can chew.
The Tax Policy Center looked at what Sanders is proposing to spend versus how much he would increase taxes. According to its research, the plan would add about $18 trillion to the national debt by 2026.
It’s easy to see why a Sanders presidency would increase spending. He wants to implement single-payer health care and eliminate tuition for public universities, all while expanding family and medical leave and social security. And the tax increases he wants may not cover those costs.
Easy to see, but I thought only the 1% was going to pay for everything? Well, I guess they still are technically, it’s just that Bernie is expanding his definition of “one percent” to include anyone who isn’t a freeloading bum. That includes you leftists who work and already pay a crap ton of taxes. Under Bernie, you’d pay even more. But still not help make a dent in the actual grandiose plans from Bernie’s delusional pea brain.
It’s weird the things you find out when you actually pay attention. And when the media is in a panic to prop up their girl Hillary…
Of course we already debunked everything Bernie Sanders stands for, including his crap math. You’re welcome.
