From the Wall Street Journal:
“Bernie Sanders wants to raise a lot of money from Wall Street.
Mr. Sanders’s plan isn’t to ask Wall Street for money. It’s to demand it in the form of a financial-transaction tax.”
Have you heard the latest from that devil, Bernie Sanders?
It’s enough to give a guy a case of creeping glanders!
He wants to batten on Wall Street, that bastion of kindness,
with taxes till the brokers all come down with total blindness!
That fiend incarnate thinks that he can raise enough mazuma
to pay for ev’ry college kid (or make it snow in Yuma).
This will trigger shock waves in the banking world indeed;
don’t be surprised if Goldman Sachs falls down and starts to bleed!
The precedents for this intrigue do not bode well, old chum;
it will leave investors with but barely one dry crumb.
This madman must be stopped at any cost, so I suggest
we give the old Vermonter a cabana in Key West.
Once he feels that tropic breeze while sipping a mai tai,
he’ll settle down and take root like a maple tree bonsai.
