    At 2.5 trillions a year, that's a 10-year solution you have there, until we arrive to the point where YOU are the wealthy one and have to pay this tax... And this day you'll complain that it's unfair.

    it seems like the better way to help people would be to forgive student loan debt and maybe credit card debt.

    We could also do that. Going back to my earlier post; a very good justification for all of that is that most of those loans had no basis in reality to begin with. The Bank created money from nothing and expects to get real money at interest back.

    How would you know? You are a brand new account.

    I am supporting liberty. I don't want anyone overburdened with taxation. I want people to be free to work where they want, hire whomever they want, screw whomever they want, marry whomever they want, own whatever guns they want, and so on... and so forth.

    I accept your apology.

    The wealthy were already given billions if not trillions from taxes that politicians demanded.
    Time to pay it all back.

    It would require a full restructuring of the American economy so it's going nowhere. He's never been able to explain how even a small percentage of it would be paid for. The proposal as is is a non-starter but if it starts a real conversation about it then that's fine. U.S. does the same for most corporations as it is in the form of tax rules. It's a form of corporate socialism.

    Firts thing that needs to be done to make it real, abolish the idiocy that is "corporate personhood."
    Every billionaire will take it as the first notice that their time of freeloading is done.

    But there has to be corporate personhood in order for an organization to grow beyond a small-business. Because you can't scale up a business to have many investors if they are all held liable in the same manner as a sole proprietor.

    Or at least eliminate the interest on federal student aid.

    Anyone that has ever used a tax haven or loophole or bought politicians has screwed everyone else over.

    I have African American in my family tree. I'm sure most people here do. Bring on the reparations since the super wealthy will be paying that too.

    ". . . corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their 'personhood' often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established."

    The same can be said for anyone who has kids, or deducted their mortgage interest.

    On that note, not every wealthy person has done that, so you would be willingly screwing over innocent people.

    Great, so you are as terrible as you think they are.

    That's some pretty crappy logic you have going on right there.

    Where do you plan on getting that money from?

    Maybe that's why it's called universal basic income and not universal luxury income. $12k a year is a massive amount since that would take up the entire budget by itself.

    Be that as it may, 12k/yr is a big help for most of the US population.

    Hell, just have the government undo that shitty tax that the wealthy got at everyone else's expense would be helpful.

    Well, that would be a claim that I'd love for you to back up, but you and I both know you couldn't possibly do it.
