" Some presidential candidates are stepping forward with bold ideas. Senator Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax idea is a courageous step in this direction. She’s proposed a 2 percent annual tax on wealth over $50 million, with a 3 percent rate on wealth over $1 billion."
–The article is profoundly offensive. That’s courageous??? In fact, it follows the Democratic party playbook of always aiming to do the LEAST you can get away with on an issue while providing the party with some kind of fig leaf.
Where are the authentically courageous proposals to claw back the multi-trillion dollar theft of taxes owed by the rich along with the wages suppressed and stolen through the total corruption of Congress after Congress after Congress? Where are the references to one of the simplest precepts of contracts, that that which is gained through fraud may not under any circumstances be kept?
The entirety of the $170 billion Walmart fortune was accrued through the suppression of unions and through a perversely low minimum wage bought by the rich through 50 years of open bribery, yet we lack even one politician at just the state level across the United States calling for recuperative economic justice, never mind at the federal level. What a woefully lost nation.
