First, let me say how grateful we are that you have decided to sit at the table. We want you here. You are without any doubt the best representative of the bourgeois liberal faction of the Democratic Party. You are very rich, very experienced with the operation of how government works, and your news service is the living bible for capital investors. We need you. You are welcome to sit down with us and tell us your solutions to our common problems.
We believe healthcare is a right, and to guarantee healthcare to everyone in America we need your help. Help us figure it out. How do we pay for it?
We need a large capital investment in renewable energy. Immediately! How do we pay for it?
We know the top tax rate in 1960 was 91 percent on income over $200,000 or $400,000 for married filers—the equivalent of $1.5 and $3 million today. Today the top tax rate is 37 percent. That’s a difference of 54 percent from our pockets to yours. The Trump tax cuts are choking the government. The military/industrial complex is bankrupting the treasury in the same way their forefathers did when they caused the collapse of Greece and Rome.
So, welcome aboard, Michael Bloomberg.
We’re facing some violent headwinds.
We’re going to need to stick together through this.
