I think I've got a pretty good comparison for this, let me know what you think. For democrats, saying they want the rich taxed more is like what republicans do when they talk about how they'll outlaw abortions. As we see when democrats had power, they just continued the status quo tax system, just like when republicans continue the status quo abortion laws. It's all just a talking point, with zero substance yet their followers don't notice it. Seems quite miraculous to me. Don't hear me wrong, I don't want taxes raised on the rich. I want them decreased on everyone, just pointing out the lie that democrat politicians want taxes raised on the rich.
