Sanders: If Dems take control of the Senate, corporate tax rate ‘absolutely going up’

[Ed. – You have his promise to kill the economic boom the U.S. is enjoying in favor of wealth redistribution.]

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said if the Democrats took control of the Senate after the 2018 midterms elections, the corporate tax rate would go up.

Partial transcript as follows:

DICKERSON: If Democrats take control are corporate taxes going up?

SANDERS: I think we’ll take a very hard look at this entire tax bill and make it a tax bill that works for the middle class and working families not for the top 1 percent and large multi-national corporations.

DICKERSON:  There’s no question that in order to achieve all of the things you want, taxes are going to have to go up on corporations if they’re down to 21 as a result of this legislation you can’t find the money anywhere where else.

SANDERS: Absolutely, yes.

DICKERSON:  So okay.

SANDERS: In my view, absolutely.
