VIA| If you have a liberal friend or acquaintance who plans to vote for either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, send them this article ASAP with the headline “Your Future Earnings Will Fall.”
That might just be enough to get their attention if they pause the video game.
Here’s how candidates’ tax plans will affect your wallet if they’re elected.
Let’s start with GOP front runner Donald Trump…
Here’s how Sen. Ted Cruz’s 10% flat tax plan would affect you…
Here’s Bernie Sanders’…
…and Hillary Clinton’s…
As you can see, everyone hands over more money to the government if a Democrat is elected Commander-in-Chief – not just “the rich.”
That shouldn’t come as a shock.
Personal finance editor for International Business Times, Lauren Lyons Cole, says Trump’s plan will raise the national deficit $9.5 trillion over a decade, while Cruz’s will raise it $8.6 trillion over the same period.
Obviously, you and I know that is bogus.
Here’s the best part…
Cole then writes that Clinton’s plan will reduce the national debt by $1.2 trillion over a decade.
I think we know which side Cole is playing for.
Nevertheless, the proof is in the pudding. Green numbers are good, red numbers are bad. If only Cole and the millions of other liberals saw it that way, we’d be much better off.
