    IS THIS HOW YOU GET A MESSAGE TO SANDERS? The Affordable Care Act penalty should not be more than $100. BERNIE, do you agree? It's a shame to charge people who cannot save more than 1,000/yr for their IRA to have the ACA penalty of 600 wipe more than half of it out.

    IS THIS HOW YOU GET A MESSAGE TO TRUMP? The Affordable Care Act penalty should not be more than $100. TRUMP, do you agree? It's a shame to charge people who cannot save more than 1,000/yr for their IRA to have the ACA penalty of $600 wipe more than half of it out. A person can't be GREAT without a growing retirement account. (Switzerland gives their people $2,600 a month now. Now, THAT'S GREAT!!!)

    GENEVA, Switzerland — Chalk it up to Swiss affluence. Voters here will decide next month whether all 8 million citizens and legal residents should be guaranteed a generous monthly income, something no country in the world has ever done.

    On June 5, Swiss voters will weigh in on a radical proposal that would mandate the government to guarantee $2,600 a month tax-free to every adult citizen and legal resident, and $650 to each child.

    Sadly, you will never see this in the US because Wall Street, the wealthy CEOs, and the political establishment want to keep 98% of the American people down on the farm struggling day by day.icon_sad.gif

    If governments can borrow at negative or close to zero interest rates and endlessly roll over their debts, it makes no sense to tax. Just borrow all of the money and get rid of the cost of complying with the tax code, the costs of tax collection by the government and, most importantly, the disincentives for work, saving and investment resulting from the tax system.
