We should all be paying attention to Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont. He’s a strong, consistent voice in the political wilderness (AKA “Washington, D.C”).
Now he’s introducing a bill that would impose a surtax on millionaires.
It’s about time for some “shared sacrifice” from those who have profited most in the recent meltdown.
81% of American citizens support a surtax on millionaires, to help offset the deficit.
As Bernie Sanders points out, it would raise $50 billion/year.
