    He will never learn. Bernie has never held a job in his life and is still rich with 3 homes pushing everyone else to give up their wealth.

    That is only propped up by a great capitalist economy. Just because you have socialist benefits, its not the market which is socialist in the end that pays for those handouts. And who wouldn't love "free" stuff.

    Why did the OP FAIL to include a link to that OUTDATED article from April, 2016?

    Is it because the factually challenged rightwing source has no credibility?

    Oops, entered the link but evidently might have hit the wrong button. It is there now.

    BTW: 2016 in a period of decades of the ravages of socialism isn't that long ago.

    The FALLACY is right there in the part you quoted!

    1970 + 25 = 1995!

    That was TWO DECADES ago!

    Since then Sweden has become a highly successful SOCIAL DEMOCRACY with one of the highest standards of living in the world.

    FTR your rightwing source lacks credibility which is why it pushes that OUTDATED DISINFORMATION.

    That's great. Let's use our great capitalist economy to get their socialist prograns.

    I agree completely

    They are becoming highly successful again because they are dumping much of the socialism applied at that time.

    So you will be ok with taking 60% of peoples income when they earn more than $60k a year? Its not their Uber rich who pay, its their middle class. Also, once we bring our Troops back home from everyone in the world, maybe we can have a discussion about giving those who don't work more freebies.

    Yes, they lowered taxes and reduced welfare benefits.
