Medicare for All - just add 36% points to your marginal tax rate - Anonymous2000 Send a noteboard - 11/02/2019 02:30:53 PM

"Here’s the bitter truth: According to Congressional Budget Office data, raising $32 trillion in tax revenue would require adding 36 percentage points to the marginal tax rate of every federal income taxpayer in the United States. Not just the rich — everyone. The single woman earning $82,500 and the couple earning $165,000 would see their rates soar from 24 percent to 60 percent. Ouch."

Any more questions about this asinine idea or can we put it to rest once and for all?
