I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land -- God bless the USA.

I'm quite sure both AOC & Bernie'd be MORE THAN happy to do the honors, corps thumb their noses at taxes, they'll make 'em pay thru their noses

Heckfiar the song says 1 for you 19 for me. A 95% rate?! That thumb breakin' nostril wreckin' sinus stretcher tops 'em ALL! And if corpos complain they'll TAKE it all.

Mebbe AOC 'n' Bern outta record an edgy Hard Rock head banging cover of it at the Democratic Socialist Studios... radio play, ITunes, concerts, raves! Bern sings lead, AOC as background... Next stop, LIVE TV

I can see it now: "Ladies & gentlemen, we've got a rilly big shew for you tonight - FROM Washington DC? It's The Incredibly Fantastic FEEBLES!"

It's not only the tax rate, it is also what happens with the tax revenues.........: "Who benefits" from all those taxes being forked over to the municipal, county (in some cases), state and federal governments. Then there are those "fees", which when you get down to it, are just taxes by another name. And licenses, which you need in order to work to pay taxes......

Well the taxes for SS & Medicare ostensibly benefit seniors

We'll see what happens when both programs can't continue to provide benefits at the current rate. Meanwhile our leaders can't bring themselves to address their looming insolvency

I dunno what it is about it but if it's money falling out of the sky they're waiting for, I'd say it's looking more & more likely this will not end well
