Trump tax cuts grew 500 Richest People wealth by 25% this year

The 500 wealthiest People held a networth of 5.9 trillion dollars, collectively up by 1.2 trillion over this year alone. In other words the wealth of the richest grew simply because of Trump's tax policy. The rich here got richer while the middle class wages have largely stagnated for decades. This should be proof enough that trickle down economics is a hoax. It is certainly not right for tax policy to enrich people. This a a great example of Republican Socialism.

Quit saying that Bernie Sanders can’t win, he may be the most electable Democrat running in 2020

Don't know whether Bernie Sanders should be president. But if the argument is about "electability," a case exists that Sanders is not merely electable, but may be the most electable Democrat running right now. Democrats who want to defeat Donald Trump in 2020 should not assume that Sanders is a politically risky choice — even though that is the conventional wisdom — and instead look dispassionately at the arguments for and against his supposed electability.

He raised taxes on hi-income earners and raised minimum wage.
