Most of the credible research firms are stating that all of Sanders' programs would cost around $97 trillion dollars. This is around 25 times more than our current federal budget. He's finally showing a tax plan and the highest rate is 52%. I've looked at the raw data from the IRS (something anyone can access as it doesn't include personal data), and there isn't any tax rate that would pay for everything he's promising.
Even if everyone who pays taxes would pay 100% in taxes it wouldn't be enough. Even if the federal government seized all the net worth from every U.S. citizen it would only add up to around $98 trillion. So they could seize all the assets we own outright and possibly pay for the first year's bills but what about the next year?
This is what I'm talking about. For people to believe what he's saying is absolutely insane. Elizabeth Warren is almost as dangerous. The bottom line is that our country will be in terrible danger if this particular voting base grows. I know having a test that people must pass to qualify to vote will never happen but in my opinion, it would do more to protect our country than the Department of Homeland Security. Our greatest danger comes from U.S. citizens not non-citizens.
