Maher has just become unwatchable anymore. If someone's saying something he's interested in or that he agrees with, he's turned toward them eagerly and listening. Almost like a dog at your feet giving you attention. Then when they start saying something he doesn't agree with or doesn't care about, he's shuffling his stupid cards endlessly and looking down (see the clip). Almost like a cat completely ignoring you as insignificant.

In America any person with the aptitude and desire to achieve higher education should have the opportunity. Keeping education a luxury is how the elite limit their "competition", sorta speak. Keeping the majority less educated than themselves is highly lucrative for them.

I don’t agree with taxing people that make $10mil up to 70%. That much more taxes on the individual isn’t the problem, it’s part of the problem. it’s the allowance of billion dollar companies and the no taxes on Wall Street trades that can pay for all of the education and health care. And it’s the outrageous military budget of nearly one trillion a year that should be cut down & repurposed. Our taxes are channeled to a lot of billionaires through their Corps. How do we justify subsidizing hugely profitable companies? How do we justify spending 800 billion on a military that is as much as the next 2 dozen countries below us combined? It’s all about our tax dollars going to these wealthy corporations and nothing more. Bernie may not have all the answers but he does want to end Corp control of our government and that’s the best start we NEED

I appreciate that Bill asked a dumb question here, but the overall shade you're throwing at Bill is not warranted. He's been making good arguments from the left for many years. And his dumb question lead to a great answer from his guest.

(2) The idea that taxes pay for things at the sovereign currency level needs to be ruthlessly discredited, it is false and harmful and promotes austerity thinking. "Taxes paying for sh*t" is purely playing into neoliberal bulls*t economics. #LearnMMT A sovereign government with monopoly power to issue fiat currency effectively is issuing IOU's, it never needs to borrow or tax to create money. It _does_ need to tax to make the currency _valued by being in demand,_ and to limit inflation, and to reduce wealth inequality, but _never_ to fund any social programs. We can have free college provided there are teachers who are willing to be paid to do the work, that's the only real constraint. If there are not enough teachers then we cannot have quality free college, some students will have to miss out or get crammed into huge classrooms.

(1) There is no subsidy involved. Taxes do not fund the Federal government. What taxation does is remove money form circulation to create inflation-free space for spending on social programs. But provided there is no inflationary effect scored by the CBO the deficit spending is good quality and can be left alone as pure deficit.

maher wants socialism, but only for millionaires and billionaires, as for free college education, do we not want educated scientists, philosophers, doctors, educators, basically, those who raise humanity out of the mud, maher doesn't, all he wants is the adulation he receives for his biased jokes, his one sided view of the situation in palestine, in short, maher is a repugnant pretending to be a decent human being, his democrat party is the corporate shills pelosi and schumer , "the nice repugnants" , repugnants!

What do these right wingers have against their money going to help the lower brackets? The Northern European countries pay 40-60% taxes and 30-40% of it goes to elevate their society. Subsidised housing, welfare, subsidising schools etc.... we r all on the same side. We all win. You carry me tomorrow I carry you. Lots of millionaires go bankrupt. Hello. Society will carry them back on their feet.

I wish Michael (Mike) Render would lose the moniker "Killer" on his name. He is an articulate person who has a mind that is wonderfully organized by how he expresses himself logically with verbal skills to match. "Killer" is not a term that should be associated with his name.

Bill Maher is a extreme bigot, who says the N-word, supports Israeli illegal war against Palestinians, and maintaining the status quo in America.

Killer Mike on fucking fire. His response was way better than giving Maher the time of day. Building on generations is a more compelling language than arguing from society, although it's the same theme ;P

Did I miss something or did Bill Maher totally forget/ignore the "speculative transaction tax paid by wall street" part... Does he mean wall street execs are poor/non College educated...?

When Trump filed bankruptcy, poor people taxes help pay for his delinquent bills he didn't pay. Corporate welfare are also monies that poor people's taxes help pay. Corporate expenses are always passed off to the consumer. Poor people also help subsidize Israel's economy and military. How do poor people benefit from that? Why should they pay for another country's economic enrichment? ---Not to mention paying for a kosher tax.

Self proclaim pro-lifers should be in favor of free-college/ trade schools. You know in order to give the disadvantage children they so passionately advocate for a shot at knowing a life other than poverty.

HELLO! Taxes do not "pay for" government spending. Monetarily sovereign governments e.g. those in the US, UK, Japan, China, Australia, Canada, etc, etc. CREATE THEIR OWN CURRENCY "de novo", i.e. they create money by keystrokes when they spend. Bill Maher wouldn't have $1 to pay in taxes or for anything else if the federal government hadn't first spent it into the economy. #LearnMMT #BillMaherIsAMoron

"Most people do not get out of poverty if they're born into it." That's also true in socialist countries like Canada and Finland. The chances of getting out of poverty are better in places like Canada and Finland than in the USA, but it's still unlikely.

Why do you think more people going into college would be a good thing? Aren't there plenty of people graduating already with degrees that aren't very useful?

Their whole understanding of the federal tax system is wrong Because federal taxes are deleted, and pay for nothing, therefore the question of how are we going to pay for it is a bogus question because the only way that anything is paid for on the federal level is by the federal government creating money when the federal government pays for it,once again our federal taxes pay for nothing, this is how a fiat currency works, the understanding of how the fiat system we are under works is called MMT,

I agree with you about free college and healthcare, but your argument that this is like roads is wrong. People in cars are generally middle class and above, and the U.S. especially has a horrible track record of creating ever expanding road systems designed for cars-only. That subsidization is why the U.S. transit system sucks, it's why biking and walking are horrible, and it's why suburban sprawl has accelerated segregation. So there is a strong, smart argument for thinking about who pays for what and whether a public benefit is actually supporting "ordinary" people and goals of equality. In social democracies, there's actually arguably a lot more market based stuff going on with roads. Sweden has very successful congestion pricing programs that help to lower car use and to support transit improvements. Socialism isn't anti-market, it's a complement to markets.

Even the public college is free, the poor people might not be able to attend it. Why? When it is free, there is a lot of candidates, more than the openings. Let's say there is 2000 opening in the local free community college and 6000 applicants. There is an entrance test and your high school scores matter. So 4000 will be left out. That's normal. That is how it works in my country. You still need to be smart to get in.

Bill Maher isn’t a conservative, don’t be stupid. He’s been one of the strongest people on the left for a long time. Calling him that because he disagrees with you on maybe 2% of policy is disingenuous.
