Conservative commentator and comedian Steven Crowder took some time on his podcast to completely dismantle Bernie Sanders socialist tax plan. Bernie goes to the well very often when complaining about the Republican tax plan. It wasn’t hard for the Crowder team to have a lot of fun at the expense of the absurd “Democratic Socialist.”
In a piece in the Guardian, Sanders attacked Trump’s tax plan as “Robin Hood in reverse.” Crowder was quickly able to point that this statement makes absolutely no sense.
The Republican budget, which will likely be debated on the floor of the Senate this week, is the Robin Hood principle in reverse. It takes from those in need and gives to those who are already living in incredible opulence.
“Oh really?” Crowder asks. “Bernie, can you give us any example of a policy you’re actively taking something from a poor person, literally confiscating their rightfully earned property, and handing it to a rich person? Is there anything in there to that effect? Nothing?”
Guess what Sanders goes after next? His favorite rhetoric about the “top 1%”:
According to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, by the end of the decade, nearly 80% of the tax benefits of the Republican plan would go to the top 1% and 40% would go to the top one-tenth of 1%.
Crowder pointed out that there are other people who are ultra-rich besides the “Waltons of Walmart.” The top tax bracket is anyone over $250,000 a year, not just billionaires that Sanders loves to point out.
