A Progressive Road Map for Soaking the Middle Class

  March 16, 2020, 12:00 PM-1:00 PM

  John Locke Foundation, 4800 Six Forks Rd, Suite 221, Raleigh, North Carolina 27609

The progressive agenda is arithmetically impossible. Taxes on the rich alone cannot raise the necessary revenue to fund large European-style welfare states. Confiscating every dollar earned by every taxpayer with incomes of $200,000 or more would only pay for about half of the new programs being promised by prominent lawmakers. Dr. Adam Michel from the Heritage Foundation will join us to share how large welfare states are funded in other parts of the world, the economic price of the European system, and what proposals like Medicare for All, taxpayer-provided college, a national job guarantee, paid family leave, and the Green New Deal could cost middle-class Americans.
