re: At what point do we conclude trickle down is just a fantasy? - Antonio Moss
[quote] at people who think it's ridiculous to expect something called "healthcare" to have anything to do with "health"[/quote] You need to read better. "Healthcare systems" absolutely have something to do with "health." They just aren't at all directly correlated to the overall health of a popu...

re: At what point do we conclude trickle down is just a fantasy? - Antonio Moss
[quote]What do YOU think our healthcare system should be responsible for if not our health?[/quote] Remedying health problems that exist prior to its introduction into the system. The idea that overall health is a direct result of a healthcare system's effectiveness is beyond fricking ridiculo...

[quote]No. We are opposed to government programs attempting to fill the role parents are supposed to fill. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY[/quote] That's all fine and dandy but the parents aren't buying these lunches for kids. You and I are. So unless we are going to do away with the free breakfast...

re: At what point do we conclude trickle down is just a fantasy? - Antonio Moss
[quote]Since 2008, we have not made more trickle-down policies. And yet the wealthy have grown richer. Yet you assert that it's trickle-down policies which do this. There seems to be a disconnect between your assertion and reality.[/quote] Correct. Our economic policy since 2008 (and to a degree ...

[quote]Tons of growth for the wealthy, but none for the middle class and below. What you would expect if trickle-down were a joke.[/quote] I'm not talking about growth in individual wealth; I'm talking about economic growth. Two totally different things.

re: At what point do we conclude trickle down is just a fantasy? - Antonio Moss
[quote]Because the economy is driven by global consumer demand, not by how much wealth the richest in society has accumulated[/quote] Trickle-down relies on actual growth for the lower classes to reap benefits. We haven't had much actual growth since the recession in 2008. Despite the propaganda ...

[quote]The rich are richer than they've ever been. When does this magical trickle down effect come into play if ever?[/quote] I'm not sure "trickle-down economics" is the correct way to describe our current economic policy. Since 2008, we've been applying strict Keynesian economic principles. Sub...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - Antonio Moss
Look, we can all agree that taxation, in any form, is the confiscation of private property through force. So the arguments as to private property rights as it concerns the estate tax are irrelevant because they apply across the board....

[quote]Danny earns $130. He gets $100 after taxes and buys a share of XYZ in 1953. After 40 years, that share is worth $2,000. He dies, passes it to his children, and if he doesn't pay an estate tax, although he has paid $30 on the first $100 of the investment, he has paid $0 on the $1900 in unreali...

[quote]However, I could see some real issues with policing it. What wouldn't be considered "avoidance" of the tax? Under this system, do we care if people avoid it?
