'The Tax System Doesn't Work' Says Group Touring US by Bus to Call for Higher Rates on the Wealthy

It is pure Laffer Curve trickle down voodoo.

The “so called” free enterprise" doesn’t work when the wealthy have been able to purchase politicians whole sale. It isn’t free or fair enterprise. It tends to push education and fair play aside for profit allow laws that favor the already wealthy class and push the worker down to sub standard living. There is a protective wall around the wealthy, the American congress, the administration and the courts. Unions negotiated the 48 hr. week down from 60, negotiated the 40 hr. week from 48, negotiated ss, negotiated double time and half time, vacations with pay, negotiated health insurance, retirement plans. Now they can’t even form. Wal*mart won’t even let them in he door.
Whose to blame? Reagan Clinton with trickle down and Go along get along Obama. Hilary with her “I DON’T WANT TO PAY FOR A RICH KIDS EDUCATION” Trump isn’t an anomaly. He was the only logical choice. He may be again. Listen to Whiny Harris.

No one is asking for an arm and a leg, just a return to a sensible level upwards of 50%.
