    Thank you... Tucker Carlson...

    Edit/ Caveat:
    Carlson still managed to be a shill in the segment. After admitting that only Bernie was going after underpaying corporations like Amazon and Walmart with important legislation, his conclusion was “But it will never pass because, despite what they might say, the liberals in Congress will never vote for it.” You know, neglecting to mention that the GOP has a majority in both houses and could pass any piece of legislation without a single “liberal” vote.

  4. Ppl hate on Tucker because he preys on the worst of the worst liberals that give other liberals a bad name.

    He's one of the least conservative guys on Fox News and is pretty even keel when not arguing with whack jobs

    His point here makes no sense.

    Yet as soon as Bernie or another social democrat makes any policy that isn't ultra-capitalistic like increasing the minimum wage or voting for universal health care cucks like Tucker will proclaim that Bernie wants to turn America into Venezuela.

    I should explain more because I used to buy it, but I'm not up for it now. I'll get back to you.

    Perhaps that’s because Trump is a douche.

    All he has to do to get me to change my tune is listen to what Carlson is saying here and act on it.

    Sorry for the cynical take, but would Tucker complain about Bezos if he didn't own WaPo?

    Imagine actually getting your news from that bow tie wearing bitch.

    Haven't taken him seriously since Stewart slapped him all over his own show on Crossfire many years ago.

    I think JVS's point is that, if Amazon paid its employees more than market wage, they wouldn't be Amazon. You don't succeed in the market by paying employees more than you have to, and doing so is not the (in the case of publicly owned corporations, legally defined) role of the corporation, unless legislatively compelled. This is a systemic -- and purposefully designed -- problem, not a problem of individual corporations. The individual corporations are just more ripe for rhetorical exploitation.

    Maybe the market wage is artificially reduced due to legislative failures that give Corporations significant bargaining power over their employees.

    The result is that, despite the image of free markets, it actually ends up with the state subsidising wages which I would imagine conservative voters are philosophically against.

    Yeah, I think that's a fair commentary. But it's certainly not a problem of insidious individual CEO's/companies.

    LOL @ "conservatives...philosophically."

    For all of time, it has been undeniable that most conservatives are just reductionists and reactionaries. But right now, that's basically the definition of American conservatism. Those with an actual, coherent philosophy make up such a microscopic portion of conservative voters (<1% imo) that it's almost humorous to even refer to conservative philosophy anymore.
     

  19. This is hard to process. I am reduced to a broken clock being right twice a day.
