Biden and Sanders can only promise huge tax increases and a path to recession

Joe Biden has made it clear: The first thing he would do if elected president is "repeal those Trump tax cuts." Bernie is even worse: Repeal the tax reform legislation and impose a wealth tax. America would say goodbye for good to President Trump's blue-collar boom.

The coronavirus isn't the only disease that endangers the health of the nation. Though it threatens to sweep everything that came before it into the dustbin of memory, the virus had a precursor that insidiously infected the U.S. justice system. When Americans rise from their sick bed in due course, they should renew their insistence in discovering who is responsible for the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
