    Imagine only wanting to spend the money of others to help people.

    Imagine pondering how effectively the US government can spend bill gates fortune compared to bill gates own charity.

    Bill Gates has already donated 36 billion and plans on donating effectively all of his money to charity. His charity has already saved millions of lives. Big brain Bernie thinks he can do better.

    1) bernie did not advocate for actually taxing bill gates 100 billion, so strawman in your thread le

    2) it's not "all of his money" because even in this scenario, it is outright stated that he would STILL be a multi-billionaire, so another strawman in your thread le

    you are the enemy of the people

    "Millionaire that donates 1% to charity ponders how effectively he can spend the money of a billionaire that is giving all of his money to charity" was going to be my le but it was getting too long or that was my perception of it most of the way through it.

    I did not say "all of his money" in that respect. I was saying Gates is donating all of his money.

    The whole scenario is trash because Bill Gates doesn't have $100 billion to tax away. He has ownership in companies with high value. Bernie is just pandering to his base about the evil billionaire that has saved millions of lives and drastically improved the quality of living in our modern world.

    Bernie: ponders how effectively the government can spend $100 billion dollars of Bill Gates money.

    Bernie: Our message: the billionaire class cannot have it all when so many have so little

    Nathan89 : Bernie wants the money of a billionaire

    Person who carries water: That's a strawman

    Bill Gates Would Support Trump Over Warren/Bernie





    This explains why OP decided to make a thread swallowing some Bill Gates semen today

    Repugs bought the votes of assholes like Gates with the Repug tax cut scam, quid pro quo, also true for BigCorp, esp BigOil being allowed by Repugs to up Alaska, coastal waters, national parks, etc, etc.

    Im all for super-progressive tax systems, Gates told the audience. Ive paid over $10 billion in taxes. Ive paid more than anyone in taxes. If I had to pay $20 billion, its fine.
    But when you say I should pay $100 billion, then Im starting to do a little math about what I have left over, he continued. You really want the incentive system to be there without threatening that.

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/bill-...her-wealth-tax

    People are shocked Bill Gates doesn't want to vote for someone that ruins incentive structures that innovation is based on. Because that's not important.



    Check out this big brain editor of Time.

    "the great philanthropist of our age, is so attached to his own wealth"

    The "philanthropist of our age" who has donating $36 billion and has plans to donate effectively all of his wealth is apparently "so attached to his own wealth".

    Further perhaps Bill doesn't digest the "white nationalist" propaganda that you've seeming digested. Perhaps question if that is correct or not. If you still think it's correct then perhaps you should weigh that against the problems that Bill highlighted like ruining the "incentive system" and question just how damaging that is.

    Or you can forget about all that and paint the narrative of the rich man that's donating all of his money to charity is "so attached to his own wealth". I see people in this thread already running that moronic logic.

    Gates whine he's paid $10B in taxes, but I'm sure he's avoided $10Bs in taxes.

    I'm not looking at any of that. Do you want to sum up the relevance?

    He has also donated 10s of billions. Of course the government would have spent it more effectively.
