26. Says any critical thinker

 

"i see another corporate dem who is dem in name only who loves clinton and damn everyone else."
^^^ I see a person who is quick to jump to conclusions because they can't bear to see comrade Sanders receive due criticism.

"His plans make sense to those who are true progressive dems not coporate dems."
^^^ This is not true. Sanders doesn't get a free pass for lacking basic math and economic skills because he's simply a good salesman. You also don't get to think about talking about "dem in name only" or framing a discussion where everything not on Sanders's platform is not-of-the-Democratic-party when Sanders is the one who isn't even a Democrat.

Sanders's plans appear specifically designed to bring us into recession. Every worker under his system gets tax increases...not just the wealthy. Sanders obscures the fact that when the federal government pours collected revenue back into the economy that will stimulate the economy...just not necessarily for you even though your taxes certainly went up. Jobs may be added back to the economy, just not necessarily your job when you got laid off due to the payroll tax increase.

The payroll tax increase alone would put millions out of work. The Robin Hood Tax and capital gains increases will drive down capital investment challenging the idea that we would be able to successfully collect the revenue we want to implement desired social/infrastructure programs.

That's bad...and to bring back to the point of OP this is part of why the Republicans want him as our nominee. They know he can be dismantled and it shouldn't take them long.

Sanders isn't an acceptable candidate.
