On Bernie's Affinity for Sweden
It depends on what he's referencing. If he's talking about the Sweden of today that has radically reduced a) public spending as a percentage of GDP and b) the top tax rates, I could probably live with that. But if he's talking about the Sweden of the '70s and '80s in which government spending was for close to 70% of GDP and the top tax rate was 80-something percent (a policy that prompted many rich folks to simply leave the country - HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!), then, no, that's unacceptable.......Knowing the fascistic Sanders, it's more than likely the latter.
