    You know, I love Bernie but at best this is a conversation starter. I don't see how some of this is enforceable.

    Publicly traded companies shouldn't be able to use overseas profits to pay stockholder dividends unless taxes are paid on it first. That we could enforce.

    But then dividends are at the whims of the board of directors, so maybe not.

    I like Bernie Sanders because he is an independent, common sense leader from Vermont. I could support him if he ran for the democratic nomination for President. But sadly, that is highly unlikely. icon_sad.gif
