This may be unpopular but I actually find myself surprisingly relieved that there are things that Democrats can propose doing which I disagree with. Means I'm not totally partisan.
I'm not keen on a 70% rate of tax for the ultra rich as proposed by @AOC (triggers more tax avoidance measures, better to tax better to properly tax capital gains and pass-through income).
I'm still trying to work out what I think about the proposal to get rid of the electoral college - I think it's reasonable to put in some protections for smaller states to stop them being overrun by the majority, but as with the make-up of the Senate, it feels out of balance now.
Still, it's nice to be debating policy points that aren't completely insane for a change. It's nice to not only be confronted with choices between the barely sane and the absolutely ludicrous. This area with reasonable and informed differences of opinion seems under-utilized.
