Chad Benson, host of “The Chad Benson Show,” borrows Jim’s stool again today.  In this episode, Chad and Greg break down the latest Democratic presidential debate.  First, they get a kick out of watching Elizabeth Warren squirm out of answering whether she would raise taxes on the middle class to pay for government-run health care and watching mild-mannered Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg hammer her for not answering.  They also groan and protect their wallets as Warren pitches her wealth tax yet again and Andrew Yang counters by touting the horrendous value-added tax.  They note how Tulsi Gabbard was the only Democrat on stage who admits President Trump won in 2016 and thinks impeachment will only help Trump in 2020.  And they have fun with some of the really bad answers candidates gave when asked to name people who think differently than them but have had a profound impact on their lives.

    Heck I’m voting for Tulsi. She can’t be any worse than Trump on Syria.

    If you mean in the primaries, by all means have some fun.  But she’s not going to be the nominee.  And I hope you come to your senses before the general election.

    Just on everything else, such as Supreme Court Justices.

    Interesting how some people who might feel insulted at being called “single-issue voters” end up being exactly that.

    Finally, Ricochet podcasters who aren’t in favor of a VAT tax – I mean for crying out loud – this is supposed to be a center-right site.

    (I suppose most aren’t but there has been way too much friendlyness to new taxes on this site as of late).

    Milton Friedman opposed VAT because they always go up up up up and up.

    VAT are efficient taxes but too efficient.

    Warren has 50 plans which means she really has one plan based on her 2% fake cherokee heritage.

    My favorite quote was from Amy Klobuchar: there is a difference between a plan and a pipe dream.

    Warren can’t provide details about her plan because ‘details’ are a republican talking point.
