    • Why is there such a problem with taxes in the USA, if taxes are used for the greater good and not wasted, society is better for it.

      The tax rates on the super wealthy are way to low, the trickle down effect is just a dribble at best.

      If the USA raised taxes on the top 20% of earners by a small amount and cut back on the crazy levels of military spending the USA would be in surplus in a short time and would be able to do what ever it wanted.

      Biden's infrastructure bill is a great idea, good to see a leader with positive ideas for the country.

    • The tax rates on the super wealthy are way to low, the trickle down effect is just a dribble at best.

      Taxes are not actually that low. The combined Federal + State + Local tax rates in some places are in excess of 50%. And that doesn't count other taxes, or the double taxation on corporate income.

      Part of the problem in the US is everyone uses vague terms and doesn't actually take a view on what the taxation levels should actually be. The right is always "they're too high" and the left is always "they're too low".

      A big part of that is that the far left extremists view any system that allows wealthy people to exist is a mistake, and the far right extremists view any system that taxes at all is theft.

    • I think the financial markets are modestly positive today......... but there are a lot of devils in the details yet to be spelled out, and made clear.

    • Lots of good stuff in here. I like seeing the commitment to electric vehicles. But as you said, Republicans will fight to block this. It’s as if they’re committed to government not working for us. Smh πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
