MomToKippy People often misunderstand that part of the problem is government intervention in the economy. We do not need higher taxes and more intervention, just the opposite. Inflation makes people poor and regulation and interference in the free market creates an economy that can not thrive. Throwing more regulation and more taxes at the problem is not the solution and is immoral. And yes, entitlement programs are rife with fraud and abuse. Don't be fooled.

Auntie Greed MomtoKippy, you are wrong. We live in a regulated economy and we do not want to loose that regulation of the economy. IE beef industry, rail regulations, airline regulations, public roadways, minimum wage. I suggest two other regulations: Corporatoins are not citizens and should not be involved in any ballot questions -- treat them as non-citizens. Second, a 100% tax on all individual earnings after the first 10mil Euros, or equivalent. That will force corporate managers to reprioritize.
