“I think that both the left and right are finding that our politicians in Washington, DC are much too responsive to what the corporations want these days (…and I’ll actually take issue with what Catherine said just a little bit because this is worse than attacks, what they’re actually contemplating.)
They want every person in America to pay 8% of their income to private corporations. That’s actually worse than attacks because these corporation are not supervised, they’re not limited what they can do with the money. So they privatize the profits and they socialize the losses and that’s not capitalism, it’s not socialism, it’s creating create too big to fail entities that are not going to serve the needs of the public. And both the left and right agree the mandate is absolutely wrong… I could not agree with Catherine more on that.
