What Would a Socialist America Look Like?

Democratic socialism is about expanding democracy.
David Duhalde is the senior electoral manager for Our Revolution, the Sanders-inspired progressive nonprofit.

The often-ignored core of how we would implement socialism is the expansion of who makes decisions in society and how, including the democratic ownership of the workplace. Democratic socialism in the United States is as much about expanding democracy as it is anything else.

Particularly, they find that a tax increase of 1 percent of GDP lowers real GDP by about 3 percent after about two years.
You can do the math: 15*3=45% lower GDP. I would call that a national disaster.
