Lizzie rocks my world
The filibuster is allowing the Republicans to govern when they are in fact a minority party and have shown no willingness to govern for the longer term in a time of crisis. Their political thirst for power has their own interests at heart and not that of the majority of the American people. (Take a look at the Republican States who have already introduced bills to making voting more difficult and less participative). Democrats have the majority in the House and Senate but the Republicans are not prepared to govern the nation collaboratively and with bipartisanship (as we have already seen) despite their minority. The Republicans are therefore embarked on a strategy that is deliberately strangling the structural reforms that the Democrats have proposed to do in their platform / policy prior to the election and they therefore have the right in a democracy to implement their programme of structural reform without the Republican’s “noose around their necks”. The disparity of wealth is astounding and this tax will allow the Democrats to address the inequality and increase the opportunities for the bulk of the American people. Well done Democrats. It is liberating for the middle class and working poor. Additionally it is socially just. Congratulations Democrats on wedging the Republican’s despicable and undemocratic behaviour.
😂😂 SHE cares so much about the poor... lets see her sell her nice house, give it to poor people and downsize to a poorer neighbourhood
No republiKKKan would ever do that!... Donald TRUMP and his gang of Fascist super-rich only care about themselves!
YES!!! TAX the 0,1 percent hyper-rich "elites"!!... Once and for all! The evil Oligarchs of Davos, and the "World Economic Forum"!... F**K YOU, Mr. Klaus SCHWAB, and your demonic "Great Reset" agenda!!...😡😡🤢🤮
Elizabeth Warren should have become the 2020 U.S. President: she's amazing, in so many ways!...👍🏼👍🏼👏🏼👏🏼
They're doing everything to force the wealthy out and unemployment will skyrocket. Minimum wage, removal of subsidies etc will only force more jobs overseas and more usage of tax havens like they did during Obama's era. Would have been better to offer incentives for the ultra wealthy to spend their money instead of buying their own stock.
Come on it should be 5 million dollars and up, then you can have a very nice house and a small business and feel nothing.
The wealth tax will be applied to no-one. The ultra rich will hop onto their private jets and take up residence elsewhere.
To Kaitlyn (from a fellow skater), beautiful job. You captured the emotion of the song perfectly.
sounds like a good idea . they need to stop putting there masks on the lectern, might as well kiss each other . Just leave the mask on we can still here you .
I agree it’s time
It’s just for show. The billionaire already know how to avoid taxes. And they can’t tax unrealised stock gains 😂
White priveledge at its peak.
NOT only "Whites"... The all-powerful "hyper-class" is now recruited in all major World ethnic groups today!...😰😰😡😡
Did Bernie have is hand up her ass moving her lips. Bring it on. The billionaire know how to avoid it
I am a Republican, and I, along with the 99.4% of people this doesn't impact and agree with it are going to watch this go absolutely nowhere. Not because like she said, the Republicans are going to veto this with the filibuster... It's always the other side's fault. I mean, kudos to her for proposing this but she needs to take her holier than thou attitude and point the finger at her own party and recognize that Republicans aren't going to be the only ones that don't want something like this to pass. There are just as many Democrats as there are Republicans in congress worth more than $50 million. 95% of Dems and Republicans in congress disagree on everything except one thing, their campaign finances. The lobbyists will threaten to stop donating and suddenly this bill will quietly disappear again. The 99.4% of us who can't afford to lobby and who really don't have a voice in this supposed representative democracy, yet again will be left footing the bills.
I guess bombing and killing Arabs and Muslims to strengthen Apartheid Israel is his idea of "diplomacy."
What an innumerate bunch these Dems are. X percent of income spent on roof, food and survival necessities must always be a greater percent for the poor than it is for the rich. Meanwhile, the rich have a million ways of - not evading (which is illegal) but avoiding (which is legal) taxation. The rich don't own - or pay the expenses for - their houses, yachts, cars and 'planes; their companies do. Are you going to make it illegal to own shares or benefits in companies? How will that effect stock markets and 401K stock holders? Heads in the clouds Democrats.
If you're running a three trillion dollar deficit every year, you might want to think about raising taxes. Either that, or eating a whole lot less.
Makes me disappointed all over again; Senator Warren would have made a great President. Of course we need to tax to the uber wealthy. Duh.
This is what happens when you put smart, practical progressives on the senate. They get things done. It was a perfect move to eloquently explain why the wealth tax would benefit the majority of Americans, and then leave it to the Republican-lite dems to explain to the people why they want to screw them over. I was a bit ambivalent about Warren last year, but if she ever runs again, my vote will definitely go to her.
Are you flipping kidding? No one is handing out free Checks. The of idea of punishing people who are making jobs for others is foolish and fueled by pure jealously. Also it is unamerican.
Yet the left is in bed with Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey...
Why do we need a tax to help Americans, when the $1,900,000,000,000.00 asset, only 9% went to help Citizens of the USA.
So we should ban Tom brady from Football and ban Lebron James from basketball because most people can throw a football spiral or drain a three pointer? No, that is ridiculous. Don't punish people for succeeding.
Calling it a "few cents" is intellectual dishonesty.
Making it about race. Ok go to a country that suits your race so you can do better. I no why you don't it's because people don't run to country run by people of color it's always white country's USA is FIRST honey pie place to live. Take out the decent white man and it will be a Hell hole over night. Love don't Hate 🇺🇸🤔
The erect justice curiosly improve because structure historically applaud but a sick barbara. infamous, tart foot
Didn’t the rich paid much higher taxes during Reagan’s era? Did they bitch about it then? Given the totally outrageous gap between those who qualify and the poorest, it’s the least that must happen.
I prefer a 30% "Entertainment Tax" . If your income is in designated entertainment sectors, you will be taxed an extra 30%.
so then she doesn't mind paying as well
You morons keep wanting to take everyone's money and for what? You pass a bill that is supposed to be for covid and what do you idiots do, you put in 140 million dollars for Pelosi's damn tunnel, now tell me how that freaking tunnel is going to help the pandemic. Tell me how when someone busts their ass and becomes successful, that they are responsible for people that choose not to work or work only when they feel like it. You want to waste money on the people that have the most menial jobs, so they can have $15 dollars an hour. The 16 year old kid that works at McDonalds who can't even get the orders right or they can't even make change and you idiots are telling me they are worth that amount of money. I know people that are making $20 an hour and I'm sure your'e thinking, well they are making alot of money. No you see those people have been working for 40 damn years to get there and you fools want to hand it out to 16 yr old kids. Then you idiots want us to pay for a bunch of immigrants coming into this country, you have over a million people living in the streets, eating out of trash bins and you want to bring more people into this country, where do you people have your heads? How is bailing out Blue states going to help with covid or paying for abortions in other countries or maybe you can tell me how a bridge in N.Y. is going to help with covid? Do you idiots see anything in common here, you have your covid bill of 1.9 trillion dollars and a whole 9% is for covid, that's 171 billion for covid and 1.729 trillion for Democratic BS and lies and I'll bet to line some of their pockets too. You know why the democrats want this so called “ultra-millionaire” tax, because they can screw the ultra rich and it won't affect them, like Pelosi who is worth $257 million. Elizabeth who did you make a promise to? is it to the people in the USA or is it to the rest of the world. Quit wasting money on a bunch of damn BS and take care of this country and quit trying to be the most populous country in the world.
How does targeting a particular group stand up Constitutionally ?
@Michele Kett Rep. Jayapal targeted a particular racial group as she described her motivations and thus violates the 14th Amendment . She knows that is a problem, so mentioned her uncertainty about the Constitutionality of targeting that racial group
Are you among those that would lose 1% of your income?
Need trillions ? Kill the mortgage interest rate reduction if real estate is not subjected to capital gains like any other investment
Decline because you let China take all are jobs
People saying thank you. Are stupid that money is for government not us idiots.
I was never asked
Money for you
The money is for democrats government
The bridge that pelosi wants to build in her neighborhood
What has that pathetic jibe got to do with fairness for all? Are you in the the group that has so much money it’d be impossible to spend in a lifetime? If the Gate’s are happy to do it, why not you?
Welcome to socialism
Please learn something tax is not socialism.
I miss Elizabeth Warren.
It is unbelievable the successful ferocity Repugnicans used to defeat the $15 minimum wage and the NAZI-like insistence that no entry level workers in America deserve to get paid for working anywhere ever. If they had their way it would be a ZERO dollar minimum wage. It is a national immoral shame that there are jobs where you work full time and can't pay your rent. But how dare any democrat ever talk about what a CEO can make. Unbelievable evil cruel economic holocaust against everyday taxpayers and citizens. Therefore YAY please tax the hell out of the Rich, not just 2 cents. Prior to Reagan there was a 70% tax on the rich. We should really go back to that.
tax money that was already taxed? elizabeth warren is a fucking joke like when she ran for president
a lot of us that is not rich at all so I don't know what the hell you're talkin about are you rich you're up there working off our backs you are getting taxpayer money and make them him more money than any person out here working so what do you think don't talk nasty to American people cuz we don't want to hear the math and we don't want to hear your lies how tall y'all do it's a lie are the liars
The party of “gimme gimme gimme”.
Now you don't take care of CCP with our tax dollars as what you don't do you take care of American people so what in the heck is wrong with you people and it ain't to build back better okay cuz we're not stupid and we're not dumb and we don't have blinders on woman get a life and if you cannot run Dad house that you're in then get out and go to CCP since y'all want to take care of c c p then move over there CCP and then you can help them all you want with all that filthy money dirty money that you already got all these years off of taxpayers back and then y'all can live all happy ever after and then you can help them all you want with your own money out of your own pocket not out of the taxpayers pocket and not take care of the people that don't have a roof over their head scrounging to pay their mortgage in their rent the ones that do you have a roof over there had food rent utilities gas and water that's what you could do get out and go to CCP and take care of them bet you do it with your dirty money that you took from us the people money and I'm talking about American people standing up there down there like a mice are something trying to talk understand you almost sound like you're whining
AT WHAT PERCENT WAS INCOME TAX WHEN IT FIRST STARTED?WITH SUCH A RISE IN POPULATION WOULD THAT NOT STILL SUPPORT THAT PERCENTAGE ? WILL THIS TAX BETTER SERVE THE WELL BEING OF THE NATION? I DON'T THINK SO, THIS WILL SERVE THE WELL BEING OF THE GOVERNMENT AND THEIR SPENDING AGENDA. THIS WILL STILL POUR DOWN ONTO THE WORKING FOLKS NO MATTER WHAT. THIS WILL JUST AID TO THE SHORING UP OF AMERICA'S GOVERNMENT AND THEIR BAD MANAGEMENT.

This approach is particularly needed now since there are so many people increasing their wealth through unrealized capital gains, rather than salaries. Warren Buffett noted that his secretary paid a higher marginal tax rate than he did.
So Donald J Trump has to pay, according to his own bragging.............????? How much ??? Tell me !!! at least more than he did the passed 6 years on income taxes...He's a Fraud.....
Mr. Baron, how do we deal with the consolidation of the news and entertainment industries and the control of these industries by a wealthy few? So few people control most of the information we are fed. Is it possible to have an organization like the Washington Post owned by journalists?
Great move--I hope it pass.
Pennies on the dollar better than absolutly nothing .
Brilliant thank you guys!
So the Genious Elizabeth Warren has a way to go for the wealthy! First these socialists come after the rich who can hide their wealth, then they come after you!
Get rid of Mitch the bitch, Impeach him or whatever it takes get the Republicans out now!
It has nothing to do with race or color, everything has to do with education, people that do not want to be educated will always be more poor that the ones that choose to have an education. What we have to do is to have affordable education for all
But if your education system is financed by propery taxes and you live in a poor neighbourhood (which will mostly be segregated due to redlining) how exactly do you "improve the education system" without spreading wealth like this? Genuine question.
u must tax the plague lords
Why not add a debt reduction tax until the national debt is pay down, and at a certain percentage of national debt, the tax stops.
Get them Elizabeth, get them.
America needs this. Badly.
When are these people going to understand their equality agenda will NEVER happen the way they want in their agenda. Transgenders will never be accepted by the majority of the people who are not transgender and the many different religions that will never accept abortions at full term pregnancy, or giving little kids hormones for gender change who are not even fully developed mentally or physically to have a understanding of a complex topic. Women are challenged now in sports etc. We are in a crisis and she is talking about gender equality...? No wonder we are in a mess.
These people are voting to keep their privilege not for the betterment of America we need more of the truth
I LOVE MY DEMOCRATIC LEADERS! THEY MAKE ME PROUD AND I AM SO HAPPY THAT IMPOTUS IS GONE. THAT WAS A BLESSING FROM GOD. 🔴⚪🔵🔴⚪🔵🔴⚪🔵
YOU NEED TO CLOSE THE LOOP HOLES THAT TRUMP USES.
Senator Warren gets smarter and smarter the longer she remains in office and argues her point. I am impressed, I must say. She is becoming a role model of a woman who remains level-headed and fair, and still accomplishes what seems impossible.
Yeah! Just Imagine. She is So Stupid
Did she just tell the truth that today's white people in America benefiting From Slavery and redlining during the sixties
The ultra- millionaires will be paying their media dogs extra attention or fire them if they can't propaganda this into bad policy. Scare you they will. Money makes a huge difference. The stress of no money as a child, is real. The rich don't worry much at all. Only when they get sued or possible jail time does this effect and scare the child if they know. Every week a poor child has a fear of not having. Every week a rich child has a choice beyond poor adults.
Can me crazy but I appreciate these ladies, and the gentleman.
The America rescue plan has NO anything for opening schools. A very small percent is going to Covid vaccine etc. but she’s going to get the underground subway in Silicon Valley where she lives and the bridge in Schumer’s neighborhood. She is telling people what they want to hear. And none of it is the truth...It is really about opening borders to criminals while schools stay shut and raise the minimum wage so they can tax people more as prices go up and small business’s struggle more and have to cut more jobs. These people are hypocrites on a high level of hypocrisy. Why didn’t she as head of security bring in National Guard troops to protect people and the Capital on such a important day, knowing from all the rioting that had transpired all year, there would be trouble and safety was priority. Now she decides to put a fence up after the damage is done. While our borders are open to criminals. It is the same difference, but the double standard is in plain sight these hypocrites have. She needs to take a look in the mirror. HER RESPONSIBILITY and she FAILED!
ReTax the Rich! This is Long overdue. Re Tax the Rich.
