    line of thinking.

    If you look at ALL of the countries with a high quality of life, they all have three things in common.

    1: Progressive taxation where higher income is taxed at a higher rate.

    2: Government regulation on industry.

    3: A government safety net coupled with government services (like healthcare).

    •  They raided the treasury (7+ / 0-)

      And now they want the little people to pay for it by raising their share of taxes and lowering their share of benefits. In a civilized society that's called theft. In ours it's called "free enterprise". The normalization of sociopathy.
