Tax Simulation

Check out the broad effects of changing the tax system in the US that have been proposed or that will be proposed to deal with the extensive inequality that exists in the country and that is getting worse.

This simulator, available by searching for:, was researched and created by Professors Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zuckman, both of the University of California Berkeley. If you find it interesting, read their book, “The Power of Injustice”, which looks at the ways the rich benefit from and manipulate the tax system increasing inequality and their proposals to deal with it.

It is getting crazy out here, be informed!

With the addition of two new candidates this week (Bloomberg and Patrick) it becomes even more important to become informed. Maybe we can help!

Please join us at the debate watch party that we are hosting at Shenanigan’s Pub on M-55 in Houghton Lake next Wednesday, November 20th.  We will begin meeting at 8 p.m. and a light snack will be provided by the RCDP.

So come out and join us. It is a good time to be with fellow democrats and others that choose to attend to share ideas and opinions. You need not be a member of the party to attend.

Also on that same evening at 6 o’clock we will be holding our monthly business meeting at the old Denton Township hall in Prudenville. It will be a quick meeting so we can then go to the debate watch party.

The US Moves Toward Authoritarianism

Please read this piece that was posted in the New York Times. It is a very disturbing article on the administration’s attempt to denigrate science and force the scientific community to abandon it’s role as an independent force for good in the United States. The administration is attempting to keep science from exposing dangers to the public that may shed light on the nefarious intent of private interest groups that the administration supports. This will cause significant harm to us and our children. We need to stop it. Get involved with the local party and demand that the proposed changes be scrapped. This authoritarian administration must be shut down while the people still have the power to do so.
