Our democracy’s Founding Fathers did not want a privileged aristocracy. Yet that’s the direction we’re going in. The tax on inherited wealth is one of the major bulwarks against it. That tax should be increased and strengthened.
Don’t be fooled by the “right to work” name. It’s a back door destroying unions. If no one pays dues, unions have no way to provide any union benefits. And that means lower wages. So how do we strengthen unions?
We have to demand an end to corporate welfare. No more handouts to particular corporations and industries simply because they’re big enough and powerful enough to get them. No more specialized tax breaks. No more exemptions or special treatment. No more crony capitalism.
