- Student loans should be forgiven and tuition should be free

- Social Security should pay higher benefits
- The poor should have greater assistance
First the Democrats mantra was: ” the millionaires can afford to pay more taxes”; now it’s “The billionaires can afford to pay more taxes”. Either way, tax increases have usually been limited (thanks to tax loopholes and lawyers) and Federal deficits have increased. Now it’s reached the point where” We are all paying more”, both middle class, working class and poor due to high inflation.
The prediction of George Orwell book 1984 is almost becoming true. This administration almost got the Ministry of Truth and main stream media does control the message for now.
From 1984: “It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday […] it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it. […] The eyeless crature at the other table swallowed it fanatically. passionately, with a furious desire to track down, denounce, and vaporize anyone who should suggest that last week the ration had been thirty grams. Syme, too-in some more double complex way, involving doublethink-Syme, swallow it. Was he, then, alone in the possession of a memory?”
Keep believing that everything should be free and then you’ll be happy to get what little the government gives you.
Most people that want all of these benefits would never be willing to pay for it. Socialism is great when it’s other peoples money. It makes me sick when I listen to politicians push this propaganda down lazy/ thoughtless/gullible minds.
