    When you add back your healthcare costs here in the USA we are paying MORE for less than they have even with those tax rates.

    Your welfare-for-wealthy tax cuts have been an abysmal FAILURE!

    It's hard to tell if you Know that you're inserting an asinine and non applicable premise in to the conversation. FOX manipulates you with so many false premises* that we have to wonder if you're making a conscious effort here, or have you simply become That programmed by now that you'll argue false points instinctually.


    *(i.e. a border without a wall is an 'open border' therefore Dems don't want border security therefore you need to vote Repub or be over run by Honduran mobs and never mind that you're paying for the tax breaks that Repubs keep giving themselves or that most of your jobs, environment and economy keep getting sh!ttier via deregulation)

    I get that, just find someone that's willing to bring the troops home and make the cuts necessary to free up the money for your utopian society. I can wait.

    Nope, he wants to stay in Syria. Sanders wants to pay the soldiers less, sure, but for someone who is so staunch at paying people to work through government means, the military is a socialists bread and butter.

    Cause 1, they aren't socialist. 2, America IS their free military protection. We pull out, they become very vulnerable. They choose to spend their money on defense, their social benefits will drop dramatically.

    As I said before...whatever you call what they have I'll take that here. Let's test the theory and stop defending the world

    Which is why so many Swedes visit and party there. And technically, Ibiza is an Island not in Spain. It happens to be Spanish, but isn't an actual part of the peninsula...

    OK, fine. You came up with your asinine argument all by yourself. Good job.

    I dissected this argument in this thread: Why the U.S. spends more money for worse outcomes

    Anyway, overall outcomes have been deteriorating in Sweden right now because they've taken in so many poor people.
    So we're seeing the hallmarks of your socialist dream being undone before your eyes.

    Another thing: They've already had to shut down several hospitals and old people homes in more rural areas, due to lack of enough funds. Police forces are being cut (or in many cases completely dismantled altogether) in the rural areas to move them to the urban areas where crime rates have been on a speedy increase.

    Sweden 30 years ago is maybe what an all-white area of Minnesota would have looked like.

    Where is your credible evidence that capitalism only works with low tax rates?

    Wrong!

    Sweden is the 3rd ranked arms exporter in the world per capita.

    Sweden's arms industry is ranked at #11 worldwide.

    Complete and utter FAILURE to substantiate your bogus allegation duly noted for the record.
