Despite her vocal claims of being a staunch “capitalist,” liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren floated a 50% tax bracket during a recent interview; announcing her plan to “roll back” the GOP tax cuts should Democrats retake control of the Senate.
Warren was speaking with CNBC when she was pressed on whether or not the widely popular tax cuts should be “rolled back,” saying “Yeah, I really want to see them rolled back.”
“A lot of people think they’re just numbers; they’re not. They are the expression of our values. The values of the Republican Party that passed those tax cuts are to give $1.5 trillion away to the richest Americans and the biggest corporations, and let everybody else pick up the crumbs,” said Warren.
“What’s too high for the top personal rate?” asked CNBC’s John Harwood. “Is 50 percent obviously too high?”
“Look, there was a time in a very prosperous America — an America that was growing a middle class, an America in which working families were doing better generation after generation after generation — where the top marginal rate was well above 50 percent,” fired-back the Senator.

WARREN BACKTRACKS: The Senator Assures Voters ‘I’M A CAPITALIST!’
Hyper-liberal Senator and potential 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren sought to ease voters’ concerns during a fiery interview Tuesday; assuring America’s business community she’s “a capitalist” who “believes in markets.”
Warren was speaking with CNBC’s John Harwood when she was asked to weigh-in on being a “polarizing figure” when it comes to the United States’ economy and industry.
“You recognize with business people, with Wall Street, you’re a very polarizing figure,” said Harwood.
“Look, I get it. There are a lot of folks who like having the power and the riches they have,” said Warren. “But don’t call me the polarizing figure. They’re the ones who want to take advantage of this country […] I’m a capitalist! Come on. I believe in markets, what I don’t believe in is theft.”
WARREN EXPLODES: Sen. Warren Says Trump Ripping Babies ‘From their Mamas’
Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren deflected President Trump’s DNA challenge Thursday, slamming the Commander-in-Chief for “destroying lives” and ripping babies “from their mamas.”
The liberal legislator attacked the President on social media hours after Trump jokingly offered the lawmaker $1 million to take a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry; a challenge she immediately denied.
“Hey, @realDonaldTrump: While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order. Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you’re destroying,” she tweeted.

Warren’s harsh rhetoric comes after the President doubled-down on his DNA challenge earlier this week, jokingly telling a crowd of supporters ‘I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.”
