Refer to taxing income, not people...

I think progressives need to frame the discussion of tax increases differently. Stop saying tax the rich or raise taxes on the rich. Pople don't necessarily understand the progressive tax system and so it is understandable that repubilcans would be successful in appealing to a person's sense of fairness by embracing the current way of framing the discussion.

This question is for all those in a Union

What are students worth?

I have family living in Quebec Canada and after talking to them recently, apparently there is a huge debate around college tuition fees. The government wants to increase them by a total of something like 1000$ a year, and this increase is supposed to be spread out over 5 years. This has pushed a lot of students to go on strike and most of them are even demanding that education be free.
