No, a bigot is a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.
I would increase taxes on the rich and decrease taxes significantly for others. That creates demand, which creates jobs. I don't know what to do about wages. The economy worsens when the rich have all the money because they can't create the demand that the far more numerous 99% can.
Healthcare is an industry in which free market doesn't work. Patients don't have the choices a free market requires. Are you going to research the care and cost of all services provided by doctors and hospitals around you? No, and nobody else is. In the absence of true competition prices rise because doctors and hospitals want as much revenue as they can get. Medicare for all evokes the famous quote "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others." It's not perfect but it's better than anything else, and it works pretty well in all the other developed countries. Note that we do not have the best health care in the world except in a very few categories.
The wealthy aren't contributing to fixing the deficit because there's nothing in it for them. That's how people work. My solution is taxation.
In many ways the rich are wealthy at the expense of the poor. E.g. Tremendous tax cuts for the rich followed by huge cuts in aid for the poor. (The latter haven't happened but the Republicans explicitly intend them).
Taxes do not destroy financial incentives. It's always individually beneficial to accumulate more wealth.
The top tax bracket in the 1950s was 90% and the economy was great.
Plus there are other incentives, such as power.
Yes, taxation is the solution to financing government and a safety net. The right's solution is always more for the rich. Liberals tax and spend, conservative just spend on the rich and explode the deficit. Remember when Obama was President and Republicans pretended to care about the deficit?
