You're being trolled.
But you probably already guessed that.
I don't think that D-Rock and wtfman are trolling. They actually believe that a flat tax would be superior.
As for AOC, she has been brilliant. Agree or disagree, she is driving the conversation, challenging orthodoxies, and moving the Overton Window to the left. You can't really argue she's a bad politician(I don't mean you Redeye). We just spent 40 comments talking about her and her!
I think a flat tax is the way to go, and it probably does not have to be as high as 10%.
The trolling I was referring to is asinine statements like "Well... why don't you give away "6 or so's of families of 4's" of your salary."
I agree with you on AOC, She's great. When was the last time you saw congress critters on both sides of the isle so upset over a single person.
Now if only the one person responsible for the shutdown and soon to be responsible for 32 MILLION poor and working-class Americans losing nutrition assistance will pull his head out of his ass and realize that no informed American want's his racist, dangerous and ego-driven border wall, she can return to Congress and start reshaping America for a better future.This comment was edited on Jan 22, 2019, 20:23.
A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test.
It's a compassion test.
It's a decency test.
It's a social responsibility test.
