That said we find that Sanders did like high taxes in a paper he wrote:



FACT CHECK: Does Bernie Sanders Want a 90% Tax? | Frontpage Mag

Had Bernie won there is no telling how high he would have raised taxes. All we know for sure is that he would have killed the economy with his tax plan.
Who's "we"? Millions of us voted for Bernie, and not because we wanted to see America's economy killed lol.

Also Bernie did release his tax plan. And it's nowhere near taxing any income at 100%. Or 90%.

Oh no, this Conservative knows very well what Beach House Bernie's socialism means, amass a personal fortune railing against other rich people. His money is exempt from the problem of wealth concentration, it is those other millionaires and billionaires that are keeping people down.

From your own article........

Quote:
Potential implications
Based on initial estimates provided by the Tax Foundation, more tax revenue would be created, but it would come at a cost to the U.S. economy and all taxpayers. Over the next 10 years the Tax Foundation estimates roughly 6 million jobs would be lost, a 4.3% reduction in wages would occur, U.S. GDP would drop by nearly 10%, and we'd witness a whopping 18.6% fall in capital investments.

Furthermore, Tax Foundation projects an average drop in after-tax income of 10.6% on a static basis for Americans. Taxpayers in the bottom 40% of the income ladder would see their static after-tax income fall between 4.9% and 6.9%. By contrast, taxpayers in the top 1% of income are estimated to see their after-tax income fall by 17.9% on a static basis under Sanders' plan.
So the economy would fail as would we all.

Also the article I quoted from was from Jan. of 2016, yours was from May of that year. Since I was not a bernie supporter or follower I did not realize that he had put out a plan at a later date.
