A wealth tax proposal has been unveiled by Senator Bernie Sanders, which would levy a 1% tax on married couples with a net worth above $32 million. This would rise to an 8% tax slab for those married couples who are worth $10 billion or more.
Today: "Billionaires should not exist!"
Five years: "Hundredaires should not exist!"
Ten years: "People who hoard more than one pound of grain should not exist!"
Fifteen years: *Crickets*
Didn’t a few think tanks crunch the numbers; and for Bernie’s plan to work at all he would have to take all the money the 1% has and he could then fund it for like 4 months 3 weeks.
NEVER trust this spineless worm! Not only does he want us to become like the Soviet Union but he can’t even tell trespassers to get off his stage. Never forget he let BLM storm his rally and didn’t even TRY to put them in their place. If he can’t stand up to them what would he do against a world leader like Putin?
If you tax the wealthy too much they're going to leave and you know whos left paying the bills, the average American.
My paranoid theory is that if Bernie Sanders becomes President, Wall Street and the rest of 1% will sink the economy to get him out of office ASAP.
Curious how much of the profits from Bernie's recent book he has donated to charity. He seems more like the type of guy that would rather steal from his neighbors and donate that instead of his own money.
It's a very ambitious tax... I gave it the name bankruptcy.
You first Mr.Burns.
will he pay these taxes himself with his hidden millions?
The politics of envy from a multi millionaire!
I bet my first million that he and the rest of the political elite will be exempt.
Lol “extreme left”... These corporate scumbags truly are scumbags.
the socialist republic Bernie Sanders strikes again . !
Go back to the Soviet Union you hack! Or right they were so successful they collapsed.
hinestly I'd just be happy if they were taxed the same as the poor
Can anyone tell me where communism has worked?
We take the wealth earned by drug dealers ——
Nobody, and I mean NOBODY makes a billion without being corrupt as shit/— bribes, buying votes, “epsteining” peeps... etc
Just think of this as confiscating the proceeds of crime
This is a good move Bernie. This tax targets billionaire welfare babies who were handed vast fortunes without working for it.
This also targets greedy billionaires that make ridiculous personal profits off of the working classes hard labor.
It also targets lazy wealthy individuals who make money by investing large sums of money into the stock market and currently pay less than the working class on their profits.
"Sanders responded to the news by insisting again that 'no one earning less than $29,000 will pay any new taxes' under his plan, which he called 'a great deal for the American people.'" Phew and he I ws worried that the average American wasn't going to get screwed. I mean $29k, I can afford a studio apt with a shared bathroom if I made that much. Too bad you need to make $50k in NJ just to scratch the surface of family costs.
