Some claim corporations leach off the economy and welfare recipients stimulate the economy. Would seizing all assets from corporations and giving them to welfare recipients be good for the economy?

Seeing it written down, it is crazier than hearing it come out of AOC or Omar’s mouth.

Or Stalin’s or Castro’s mouth, for that matter.

YES, that’s the answer! The NewEconomy, New Green Deal, New 90% tax rate to stimulate the economy. It’s Brilliant.

It would destroy the economy.
Welfare assets neither create wealth nor jobs.

You mean not being productive is not productive? 🤔

Of course there’s no quick fix for a problem created over generations. This would be particularly nonsensical. I hope you won’t pretend like this is a serous idea being floated around.

So a quick implementation of your leftist non-sense wouldn’t be good but a slow dismantling of corporations to fuel social programs would be good? Because that what they were doing in Venezuela.

I like how you claim it’s my leftist nonsense after I just rejected the idea. 😂

Ending taxpayer-funded subsides is hardly dismantling corporations, but strawmen are your safety blanket.

You said it wasn’t a “quick fix” which indicates it may be a slow fix. You leftists are advocating for higher taxes for corporations which is different from ending subsidies. Your guy obama handed out more money to corporations than any president in history btw.

I said “there’s NO quick fix”, immediately followed by “this would be particularly nonsensical.” Step up your reading game, bro.

I have read your posts suggesting that corporations leach off of the economy and giving money to people who don’t work stimulates the economy so your typical denial isn’t fooling me. So now what are you claiming the “fix” would be?
