“For myself, I want no advantage over my fellow man, and if he is weaker than I, all the more is it my duty to help him.” —Eugene V. Debs
The man raves. He babbles. As do most of his sources. It would take a couple pages of text per paragraph to refute it all, but here's a simple test: We Can Double the Income of 94 Million Workers, from $30,000 to $60,000? Ok... umm... how much is 94 million x $30K? $2.82 Trillion, or $260,000,000,000 more than the IRS collected in 2007, the last year I can find firm numbers on.
Are you including Dean Baker and the Tax Policy Center in the sources that rave?I do wish the guy would use links instead of bad type tricks to call attention to things.Mostly, I like his point that if we just redistribute the gains that the rich have gotten since Reagan, the rest of us will be much better off. Though I think we need to do more than that, because the '70s and '80s were good times for the middle class, but not such great times for the working class.
