Capitalism creates wealth.
Socialism takes wealth.
@DNC wants to take it all so they can buy the right votes at the right time.  @NancyPelosi & @SenSchumer can control the crumbs.

Don’t let the Dems lure you with these bright shiny objects.  It’s crazy because Medicare for all would cost 75% of what our CURRENT US tax bill is today.  And the top tier of income earners are ALREADY paying 90% of the taxes!

MEDICARE FOR ALL IS AS RIDICULOUS AS NATIONALIZING POTATO CHIPS | OPINION
LEE HABEEB , NEWSWEEK COLUMNIST, VICE PRESIDENT OF CONTENT AT SALEM MEDIA GROUP AND HOST OF “OUR AMERICAN STORIES”
ON 2/5/19 AT 8:48 AM
It was a revealing moment on Fox News this past week. Two guests were on Laura Ingraham’s show, The Ingraham Angle, talking about “Medicare for All,” a progressive plan gaining traction in Congress to extend the government program focussed on seniors to all American citizens.

Representing free enterprise was Alfredo Ortiz, the CEO of Job Creators Network, a group that lobbies for millions of small business owners across the country, and the many millions more who work for them.
(...)
Ortiz was up first and gave the following answer about the move to socialize health care. “Socialism takes and capitalism creates,” Ortiz said. “That’s why you see thousands of people coming to America from Venezuela, Nicaragua and Mexico. They’re fleeing socialism.”

New Billboard in Times Square: THANKS FOR NOTHING AOC!
Job Creators Network highlights Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s epic Amazon fail on billboard in the heart of New York

PRESS RELEASE FEBRUARY 20, 2019
(...)
“The Amazon pullout is a perfect example of what we’ve been saying: socialism takes and capitalism creates,” said Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO. “The economic consequences of Amazon’s pullout is just a small taste of the harm that is to come if Ocasio-Cortez’s anti-business canon comes to fruition and is made federal policy.”

The billboard—which is located on 42nd Street near 8th Avenue—will be displayed for one week beginning today and is headlined “AMAZON PULLOUT, Thanks For Nothing AOC.” The ad goes on to highlight the economic consequences of Ocasio-Cortez’s actions and ends with the hashtag, #SocialismTakesCapitalismCreates.

by JEROME HUDSON 1 Mar 2019
The Job Creators Network, one of the country’s largest pro-jobs grassroots organizations, has kicked off a new campaign to push the message that “socialism takes, and capitalism creates.”

“This past week, we kicked the socialists right in the facts – and we’ve never been more proud. And thanks to the overwhelming encouragement from our supporters, we’re moving to snowball these efforts — taking our message nationwide that socialism takes, and capitalism creates,” the Job Creators Network said in a press release.
