Unpopular opinion, but we need to raise taxes. We're going to need to raise a significant amount of tax revenue for our government if we want to have a robust welfare state that can pay for things like universal healthcare, free college, and all the other based shit that will improve our lives, making us all richer, happier, and more equal. a VAT tax is an effective, efficient tax that hardly burdens anyone and collects a ton of revenue, and if coupled with proper redistributive policies, it isn't regressive at all like critics say. A wealth tax is a great idea too. Elizabeth Warren was the best presidential candidate of 2020 but she lost because she was too smart for the average voter to comprehend. Socialists should have backed her instead of Bernie.
Music for this feel?
