LOSING IT? Sanders Introduces Massive ‘Wealth Tax,’ Says ‘Billionaires Should Not Exist’ in America

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.24.19

In a desperate move targeting Elizabeth Warren’s “Ultra Wealth Tax Plan,” failing presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced his own anti-Capitalist proposal this week; saying “Billionaires should not exist” in the United States.

“Billionaires should not exist,” he stated on social media. “There should be no billionaires. We are going to tax their extreme wealth and invest in working people.”

“In order to reduce the outrageous level of inequality that exists in America today and to rebuild the disappearing middle class, the time has come for the United States to establish an annual tax on the extreme wealth of the top 0.1 percent of U.S. households,” Sanders writes. “This wealth tax would only apply to net worth of over $32 million and would raise an estimated $4.35 trillion over the next decade. Anyone who has a net worth of less than $32 million would not see their taxes go up at all under this plan.”

“The tax rate would increase to 2 percent on net worth from $50 to $250 million, 3 percent from $250 to $500 million, 4 percent from $500 million to $1 billion, 5 percent from $1 to $2.5 billion, 6 percent from $2.5 to $5 billion, 7 percent from $5 to $10 billion, and 8 percent on wealth over $10 billion. These brackets are halved for singles,” adds Bernie.

“Under this plan, the wealth of billionaires would be cut in half over 15 years which would substantially break up the concentration of wealth and power of this small privileged class,” he concludes.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders escalated his war-of-words with the White House Monday night; declaring President Trump “the most dangerous president in modern history” and demanding Congress subpoena those named in Robert Mueller’s report.

“We have the most dangerous president in the modern history of our country. Someone who’s a pathological liar… It goes without saying that the Congress has to take a hard look, do a hard investigation, and subpoena the people named in that report,” Sanders said at a town hall event.

The self-described Democratic Socialist raised eyebrows across the country this week after he said mass shooters and convicted felons must be allowed to vote while serving their prison sentences.

Potential 2020 Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders raised eyebrows across the country Thursday night after supporters posted a video on social media where the Senator accused the US of “bombing houses and buses of children.”

“This is the US Senate, we just starve little children, we go bomb houses and buses of children, and we give tax breaks to billionaires, but we don’t use dirty words!” said Sanders while speaking with left-wing comedian Sarah Silverman.

The video was originally recorded during the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections.

Sanders officially kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign weeks ago; saying he plans to fulfill the “political revolution” he began during the 2016 primary process.
