"Being more like modern Sweden actually means deregulation, free trade, a national school voucher system, partially privatized pensions, no property tax, no inheritance tax, and much lower corporate taxes." Is this part of learning from Scandinavia?

And an income tax rate of around 60% federal plus whatever the states might charge.

Yep. They realized that the 1600s style tax and regulate schemes don't hold up.

Anyone can pick the positives from any country and make it look nice. You're forgetting 25% sales tax on anything including food, gas costs more than twice what you pay, income tax of about 50% even at a median income, low income people also pay high taxes.... I could go on but you should read up before being blinded by someone selling a political message.

I've heard of those things before. My intent was to include the other side of the story that often gets left out. That's why I said "part".
Although they may tax more overall they tax a little smarter by not taxing capital that can easily move.
