40. No, Hillary has a detailed economic plan that has a chance of implementation, unlike Bernie's

I am all for a financial transaction tax. But I have yet to see how it could pay for everything Bernie is promising. If you raise the FTT too much, won't people do their trading on foreign exchanges?

As another DUer explained in another thread (http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1107&pid=24535), we need global regulation of banking and investments. Progressive taxes are useful to a degree, but useless without international regulation. That is why Hillary is pushing for profit sharing so that no matter how much is earned, the workers get their piece of the pie.

Here's Hillary's plan in detail:

How much will Bernie's single payer system cost?
