Even if increased taxes on the wealthy will cover services for a while (like 'free college tuition') -- which government branch (and bureaucrats) is effectively going to pull off and maintain this incomprehensibly complex transformation? (without reducing the quality of our universities) Let's just think back about our government's recent history at large scale projects: - fucked up Katrina - let 45 billion dollars go missing in Afghanistan - gave ISIS 2,300 humvees (indirectly) - spent 2.1 billion taxpayer dollars on Obamacare website that didn't work - let 307,000 veterans die while waiting for healthcare This is all shit our government has fucked up in the last 15 years. Yet meanwhile, the US private sector continues to be one of the world's top drivers of global innovation. It's not just random coincidence that Uber / iPhone / Android / Amazon / Google etc were created in the US (and not in Europe). (Europe's venture capital funding is 1/5 of the US) So yeah, while I actually like Bernie as a guy, and think his intentions are noble, the reality of making his transformations with our jacked up government (and lower-quality talent in the government compared to our private sector).....probably going to only make things worse. And I direct people to the abbreviated list of government fuckups above, while encouraging everyone to think about your last experience with the DMV (that's one of our government-run facilities).
