I am all for taxing the very rich. I can remember when we were taxing them over 80%! (those were the good old times - 1940's) Now, with this and that, I doubt they pay much more than 10% to 15% max.

As far as the green new deal is concerned. It would seem, at least on the face of it, that there is absolutely no plans to watch the national debt (quite to the contrary, in fact). This stuff, eventually, needs to be paid off. Right now we aren't paying it off. We are just paying interest on it. The interest alone, right now, is more than we spend on our military! If we keep on raising it then, pretty soon, there will be absolutely no money left for good works as it will ALL go to paying the interest on the debt. To suggest that adding to debt, to do good works, and not worrying about the debt, is a good idea can get us into a LOT of trouble.

Just saying...........
