New York Times editorial headline, January 18, 2016: A Safer World, Thanks to the Iran Deal
From the same editorial: And even if the Iranians were to attempt to produce enough nuclear fuel for a bomb, it will now take them more than a year to do so. Before the agreement, that breakout time was two to three months.
Don't know about you, but we feel safer. Much safer. How could you NOT feel safer? After all, Obama and Kerry extended the breakout time for Iran to produce a nuclear bomb from two months to, call it fourteen, months. Rest easy tonight, America.
Price for the deal? Iran gets $100 billion.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said Sunday that he would pay for his plan for a single-payer health-care system with a suite of new taxes, including a 2.2% “premium” applied to all income, a new payroll tax paid by employers, and a variety of tax increases on the wealthiest Americans.
The plan would increase government spending by a total of nearly $14 trillion over 10 years, the campaign said, and together with his other proposals, would bring federal spending to its highest level since World War II. (Wall Street Journal, 1/17/2016)
Don't know about you, but the Sanders plan sounds like a winner to us. A big winner. How could you NOT embrace "a suite of new taxes?"
Price for the Sanders plan? A $14 trillion increase in government spending.
