We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: while some reporters were waxing poetically about the diverse skin tones and dress colors of the new freshman class in Congress, we were a little more concerned that democratic socialism and anti-Semitism were creeping into the House chamber.

Sen. Warren also proposed a wealth tax and was quickly schooled on its constitutionality. But what if the wealthy were just more generous?
