Democrats need a message like “trickle up”. Put a marginal tax rate of 50% on income above $1 million, 75% above $10 million. On all income, including dividends, interest, capital gains, and inheritance. Grant $200 per week to every adult resident. All numbers adjusted for inflation yearly.

Have some economists write up the positive economic benefits. Compare and contrast to the “trickle up” policies. If we’re going to run deficits, let’s move the benefits to the people who need it the most.
