Senator Elizabeth Warren ripped billionaires taking “joyrides to space” on social media Wednesday; demanding their money be used to finance “child care, clean energy, and affordable housing.”
“Would you rather see billionaires take joyrides to space or our country make long overdue investments in child care, clean energy, and affordable housing? It’s time for a wealth tax,” posted the far-left politician.

Warren’s comments come as Joe Biden struggles to handle a series of economic crises that are sending costs higher for working Americans.
Biden’s approval ratings continue to plunge as the White House veers from crisis to crisis, with just 43% giving the Commander-in-Chief the thumbs-up according to an average compiled by Real Clear Politics.
The latest figures are:
- RCP Average 10/1 – 10/10– 43.0-52.5 -9.5
- Rasmussen Reports 10/6 – 10/10 41-58. -17
- Reuters/Ipsos 10/6 – 10/7. 48-47. +1
- Trafalgar Group (R) 10/4 – 10/6108. 40-56. -16
- Economist/YouGov 10/3 – 10/5 44-49. -5
- Politico/Morning Consult 10/2 – 10/4 45-52. -7
- Quinnipiac 10/1 – 10/4 40-53. -13
The data comes days after a Quinnipiac survey found just 38% back Mr. Biden.
A PLAN FOR THAT? Elizabeth Warren Unveils $1 TRILLION Plan to Fight ‘Environmental Racism’
Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest policy proposal regarding climate change this week; calling for $1.5 trillion in new spending to combat “environmental racism.”
“In 1987, the United Church of Christ’s Commission on Racial Justice commissioned one of the first studies on hazardous waste in communities of color. A few years later – 28 years ago this month – delegates to the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit adopted 17 principles of environmental justice. But in the years since, the federal government has largely failed to live up to the vision these trailblazing leaders outlined, and to its responsibilities to the communities they represent,” writes Warren.
Justice for communities on the front lines of the climate crisis must be at the core of our response to climate change. Here's my plan for how I'll center environmental justice in the fight to end the climate crisis. https://t.co/agB4llfPRg

“From predominantly black neighborhoods in Detroit to Navajo communities in the southwest to Louisiana’s Cancer Alley, industrial pollution has been concentrated in low-income communities for decades,” she adds. “The Green New Deal will involve deploying trillions of dollars to transform the way we source and use energy. In doing so, the government must prioritize resources to support vulnerable communities and remediate historic injustices.”

ADD IT TO THE LIST: Warren Says Pandemic Response Must Include ‘Free Child Care, Pre-K, Paid Leave’
Senator Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her calls to expand America’s massive entitlement system this week; saying any response to the CoVID pandemic should include universal child care, pre-k education, and paid leave.
“Make no mistake: This pandemic has set women back, with lifetime consequences. We need big, structural change to tackle this crisis head on—like universal child care, universal pre-k, and paid leave,” posted Warren on Twitter.
