Bernie Sanders: Wealthiest Americans and Corporations Should Pay Their Fair Share for Democracy

http://blog.buzzflash.com/node/12600

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement today on President Barack Obamas speech on the budget deficit:

The very serious deficit crisis that we are in today is the result of the severe recession caused by Wall Street greed, two unpaid-for wars, huge tax breaks for the rich, the bailout of giant banks, and an unfunded Medicare Part D prescription drug program written by the insurance and drug companies.

1. Brainwashing, decades of it. Tax Evasion Seminars with Tax Evasion Stars!
Out here in Cali, we had Prop 13 devastate the schools in the late 1970s.
People thought it was so great! Learn to use loopholes like rich guys with accountants, yeah!
Some of the stars went to jail, but the gold rush was ON!
After a while the "taxes are too high" mantra made up for being unable to totally swindle the government.

2. Tax the rich & the corporations until they bleed
Theirs is the blood of tyrants needed to water the tree of liberty.
