    Now why do I think that canvassing for the mid-term elections must be under way. ;)

    What do you think of Bernies idea?

    I think it will go down well with voters, who will not blame Sanders when the bill is defeated.

    Indeed Bezo is worth $167 billion yet taxpayers money is being used to, in effect, pay his workers. A situation that neither those on the left or right will appreciate. A master play by Bernie.

    Hopefully Corbyn will adopt this policy or something like it.

    Bernie's only a millionaire so of course he's jealous.

    Many people in the UK (on the Left and the Right) have a problem with tax credits. Thoughts?

    Tax credits simply provide incentives to companies to pay starvation wages, and expect the state to step in and subsidise their workers. A much higher minimum wage is needed.

    What about his idea? I reckon your mate Tucker Carlson will be on board.

    Tucker, of course, is not appalled that people are paid so poorly just that tax payers have to foot the bill.

    Whichever way you look at it, something should be done.

    I'll have to give it some thought.

    But it seems it'll discourage employers from taking on staff on welfare. Or it'll [more likely] increase automation of those jobs.

    I'm all for making corporations pay their fair share but... the unforeseen consequences...
