Video: Warren’s magical tax plan

 

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 22,  2019

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she’s “tired of free-loading billionaires.” 

The Massachusetts Democrat at the latest presidential debate Wednesday again pitched her “2-cent wealth tax” proposal. Her populist idea: sock it to the super rich. 

It’s a magic tax that can pay for just about every government program on breathless Liz’s spending wish list. While the numbers may not add up, going after those “free-loading billionaires” is the talking point that pays among tax happy liberals. 

Warren offers her 2 cents on her wealth tax in this MSNBC video.

  • Evers is like Schift, do everything in secret. I think it’s time to stop yanking everybody around and start working together instead of running around stabbing people in the back over petty differences.

    If all of us work together. We don’t need the far left as the only thing that will work, just like the far right and every idea is wrong. Too much bickering, and finger pointing. The government is not Santa Clause. The money for projects has to come from somewhere. No such thing as a free lunch! It has to come out of somebody’s pocket.
