You just did it again When people ask you to back up your claims, you just repeat the claim as if that somehow satisfies the request.

No one knows whether or not 401K transactions would be taxed, or exempt, because Bernie has not offered such details. Why do you pretend to know something no one knows?

What's disappointing is how financially illiterate many posters have exposed themselves to be. And then they wonder WHY they and the rest of their similarly ignorant cohort struggle.
Good to know you have been educated on a bill which has not been written yet. Congratulations.

Trying to insult people does not help your case, it only proves you are trying to deflect from a weak position.

How are you not getting that an investment transaction tax is a tax on ALL investment transactions? Serious question.

Bernie never once said pension plans and retirement accounts were exempt from the investment transaction tax. Not ever, even when critics have repeatedly stated that point. Let that sink in...

Trump has been spending other peoples money all his life, and when things fall apart he declares bankruptcy and lets other people take the fall.

Republicans have it upside down, because they think paying for programs through taxes is somehow "free stuff".
So your definition of free is .... you're free to hate anything Trump and his supporters... right?

Free is to act or do as one pleases. It seems to me you're quite good at "free". So you're ok with Bernie's "free" stuff?

The only way to eliminate debt is a balanced budget amendment, but that's not likely to happen without a revolt against Washington establishment.

I do not agree that all debt should be wiped out but do agree something should be done. The loans should be interest free, or nearly interest free, like they were for my parents.
Perhaps you are too young to remember the Tea Party movement and its opposition to the bank bailouts.

I said what I said and it was not even close to that. Feel free to read my post as many times as it takes for it to sink in.

I told you the details have not been released, and probably never will be, so you are being hysterical over nothing. You talked yourself into it.

You are having a really hard time with this.

I have said:

1. Collecting money to pay for a program does not make the program free, it means it the opposite of free.
2. I do not like his proposal.

Read what people say and take your time comprehending it.

Yes, it was formed to oppose the bail out tsunami under Bush admin.

Believe me... I got it.

When you added president Trump to the definition, and then the republicans, you remove the intellectual component and inserted your feelings. It's a chronic problem these days.

Bernie has that problem too.

Sandsthetime, if you have something to say, post it in the forum instead of repping me and writing, "Are you going to admit you were wrong on this?"

Nope.

If you're so keen on accuracy, though, perhaps we should go through your posts and clean those up so they're more......accurate.
