  • Meanwhile, Senator Mitch is going to force a vote on the Green New Deal. I guess we'll get an answer as to how mainstream it is in the D party.

          • Could be interesting to gauge appetite, but it isn't specific legislation that can be voted on. Will be interesting to see if anyone brings up that McConnell won't even consider the conservative alternative. People are talking about Overton windows. On the other hand, there is an effort to get new subsidies for battery storage. Wall Street sees that solar/wind+giant battery is cheaper than any fossil fuel in an increasing proportion of the country. Shouldn't need subsidies, therefore, as there's already a profit margin and they understand how and why to get in early. But it sure would make sense given the pace of adoption. So, IMO, there's the big virtue-signalling circus and there's the small/feasible/practical options to pay attention to.

                  • Speaking on The Vergecast this week, Gates said that while marginal tax rates in the United States can be “more progressive” — higher, in other words — there are now some politicians who are “so extreme” that their proposals would lead to wealthy people hiding income and stashing it offshore. That’s a clear reference to new members of Congress like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who had just suggested a new top tax rate of 70 percent in the week before Gates sat for this interview.

                    Gates also said that the world’s wealthiest people only have a “rounding error” worth of actual income compared to their wealth — they don’t have a lot of salary, but instead sell stocks and other assets to raise cash, which isn’t taxed as income anyway. The top 400 earners in the US are only paying something like a 20 percent tax rate, he pointed out. “It has nothing to do with the 39.6 percent marginal ordinary income rate. So it’s a misfocus. If you focus on that, you’re missing the picture.”


                    I wonder how long it will take the load of young D voters falling for the Green Deal BS, and among them other older idiots in the D party who should know better, to figure out how fucking ridiculous the D platform that is emerging on taxes actually is. I'm among those of you that are saying the D party, in an almost sure win situation in 2020, will fuck it up ...... again.

                    I too am not confident Biden will get the D nomination as it seems like those in the D party who should know better are seeing voter interest in Palin-Cortz and what they are peddling and willing to jump on to it to potentially win the WH. What they should be doing is shooting this shit down ..... advancing clear arguments for increasing tax revenues, like Bill Gates points out, has nothing to do with increasing the income tax rates on the wealthy.

                      • It's going to be a woman, whether it is Liz Warren, Gillibrand, Harris, Booker, Klobuchar, or other. The future is female afterall.

                        there is no way the dems nominate a man, especially a white man.

                                Hack asked me a while back why I thought I was a "centrist." I didn't have time to answer that nor was I particularly interested in Hack's potential for his pedantry. I don't like being lectured to. This is an internet forum for God's sake.

                                Anyway, A Schulz candidacy as an independent in 2020 is definitely on my radar. He, IMO, is the quintessential centrist (Hack, there's your answer). He has a social conscience that I can get aboard with and is a clear thinking individual with respect to his fiscal and monetary ideas. I need to read his book ..... and will.
