    Sorry dude, but the USA isn't France. I'm more concerned with this country than I am with France.

    And.................we've got problems that need addressing here, without worrying about what France is doing.

    Well, at least over there, the workers have some leverage in even talking about pensions. Over here, pensions largely evaporated in the 1980's when the corporations did away with them. If you follow the link on the changes proposed, you'll get the idea of what Macron is proposing. And after reading through it, I'm wondering why right wingers don't see what Macron is doing as a positive. Isn't this what you on the right want?

    Over here, years of wage stagnation brought on by corporate collusion and an ever increasing cost of living is slowly but surely making a larger "have not" class. Meanwhile, Republicans happily serve their corporate masters with generous tax cuts while telling the poor and middle class to "pick themselves up by their bootstraps".

    It's much easier to tax a small minority than it is to take stuff away from the masses. The wealth tax proposed by Liz Warren had it's day in Europe - and failed miserably - but Liz insists it will work this time, Comrades!!

    If a Wealth Tax is Such a Good Idea, Why Did Europe Kill Theirs?
    Normally progressives like to point to Europe for policy success. Not this time. The experiment with the wealth tax in Europe was a failure in many countries. France's wealth tax contributed to the exodus of an estimated 42,000 millionaires between 2000 and 2012, among other problems. Only last year, French president Emmanuel Macron killed it.

    In 1990, twelve countries in Europe had a wealth tax. Today, there are only three: Norway, Spain, and Switzerland. According to reports by the OECD and others, there were some clear themes with the policy: it was expensive to administer, it was hard on people with lots of assets but little cash, it distorted saving and investment decisions, it pushed the rich and their money out of the taxing countries—and, perhaps worst of all, it didn't raise much revenue.
