Exactly! I can tell you this much. Letting people keep there money will definitely grow the economy vs raising taxes, and then promising them free stuff that they end up paying for with the tax increase, etc.
I didn't mention the budgets because all of them have not been released yet but Bernie's math doesn't add up either way:
So, I wouldn't put your money on Sanders anytime soon.
Bernie's Tax Plan Sucks. Here is how the leading candidates compare on income taxes:
Establishes four new brackets of 37%, 43%, 48%, and 52%. The top rate applies to taxable income over $10 million. Raises the rate of all other brackets by 2.2%.
Adds a 4% surtax on income over $5 million.
Establishes four tax brackets, with rates of 0%, 10%, 20% and 25%. The top rate applies to to income over $150,000 for single filers and $300,000 for joint filers.
Establishes a flat rate of 14.9% on all ordinary income. Alters the standard deduction and personal exemption to exempt wage income under 150% of the federal poverty level of a filer.
So Bernie is raising taxes by 2.2% on everyone, Hillary is changing nothing except adding 4% to income over $5 million, Trump is giving the biggest break to the poor where people who earn $25,000 or less a year pay no income tax at all, and Ben Carson establishes a flat tax with exemptions for the truly poor.

Someone mod this up. This is totally correct! Until my work started making us change our password once every 60 days, and required that the last five passwords can't be reused, I had a very secure password memorized. Now that they implemented these "security" protocols I have to have a list to keep track of what five passwords were used last, and what the current password is.
It's the most retarded requirement ever!
...Whenever I am programming it is very useful when creating Constant variables as the naming convention for such variables is all caps. I wonder if any surveys of key presses takes into account that caps lock, once pressed, is in use until it's pressed again. Therefore all keys pressed after Caps Lock is pressed, until it's pressed again, should also be counted in usage statistics (imho).
...that Microsoft is even offering free upgrades to Windows 10 for pirated Windows 7 versions.
Although, this makes one wonder if this is an attempt to find pirates and prosecute them....
...that no one cares about posted by some jackhole dice moderator. I wish some rich Slashdot reader would buy dice to acquire Slashdot, and then fire all Dice employees, and shut dice down. FU DICE! Stop ruining Slashdot!
