100 Words -- The New Revolution

I have a few problems with the new revolution. Using tax policy to punish Wall Street -- like relying on gamblers and smokers to fund schools -- is short-sighted. Promising future students a free college education short-changes the millions of graduates struggling to repay their loans. Bernie does get one thing right. Government should be addressing economic inequality. The Reagan Revolution said government couldn’t solve our problems, tax cuts would create a rising tide that lifted all boats. That revolution left behind those too poor or too marginalized to get on the boat in the first place. It’s time to address that.
