Real Clear Politics: Cory Booker: "We Need To Bring In A Lot More Revenue In This Country".
Yeah, it's not a a spending problem. It's a lack of revenue.SEN. CORY BOOKER (D-NJ) at MSNBC's Democratic presidential primary debate: Well, first of all, I think we all agree that we need to bring in a lot more revenue in this country. We actually have a real problem with the tax rates, tax loopholes, tax cheats. And I don't agree with the wealth tax, the way that Elizabeth Warren puts it, but I agree that we need to raise the estate tax. We need to tax capital gains as ordinary income. Real strategies will increase revenue.
But here's the challenge. We as Democrats need to fight for a just taxation system. But as I travel around the country, we Democrats also have to talk about how to grow wealth, as well.
"Grow wealth." Cory needs to consult with Crazy Bernie and Liz Warren on that. He's obviously far behind the 8-ball.
The Kinks - "Sunny Afternoon", DEMS want to take that away from us too.
