To understand one aspect of the Progressives and where this country will be going should they regain power, all you have to do is go back to the 2016 primary when Bernie Sanders was still in the running. During that time, a young Sanders supporter/campaign worker appeared on a television interview and was asked how everything Sanders promised could be payed for. Her answer? The taxpayer will pay. To her, there was no limit on government spending because there was no limit on how much the citizenry could be taxed.
No matter how much the government took, there was always more where that came from.
