Something's awesome in the state of Denmark

What Denmark does have — what all the Nordic countries have — is relatively high taxes on the middle class, which gets double-whammied with income taxes and a value-added tax. Is that what Sanders et al. are proposing for the United States, to make it more Danish? A big, heavy tax increase on the middle class? Maybe it should be — the Danes have a big welfare state and they pay for it – but no Democrat walking this Earth has the intellectual honesty to say as much. 

Strong property rights, low corruption, openness to trade and investment, low public debt: Bring it on. 

Sanders seems to think that nothing has changed in Denmark or Sweden since 1975. Denmark today has one of the world’s most free economies, up there with Canada, Switzerland, and Australia. That isn’t socialism, kiddies.
