SAME OLD SCRIPT: Fading Warren Accuses Her Democratic Rivals of ‘Sucking Up to Billionaires’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.11.20

Rapidly fading presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren continued to launch attacks against her 2020 rivals Tuesday; accusing fellow Democrats of “sucking up to billionaires” ahead of the New Hampshire primary.

“We’re in 30 states now. Remember, when I made the decision not to spend 70% of my time sucking up to billionaires and corporate executives and lobbyists, and instead to fund my campaign through the grassroots, it gave me a lot more time to do town halls,” said Warren.

“For me, that’s how democracy should work. That’s one of the big questions here: How’s our Democracy going to work going forward? Do you have to suck up to billionaires in order to get the Democrat nomination?” she asked.

BACKLASH: Elizabeth Warren’s ‘Billionaire Tears’ Campaign Merchandise Sparks Criticism

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.14.19

Senator Elizabeth Warren raised eyebrows on both sides of the political aisle this week after her campaign store began selling merchandise labeled with “Billionaire Tears,” a move some are calling inappropriate and distasteful.

“Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren isn’t backing down from her fight against billionaires — in fact, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts is now selling $25 ‘billionaire tears’ mugs on her campaign website,” reports Yahoo News.

“In November 2019, billionaire and former Goldman Sachs executive Leon Cooperman (who as recently as 2017 settled with the SEC on insider-trading charges) was brought to tears on live television while discussing the prospect that a President Elizabeth Warren might require him to pay his fair share in taxes,” writes Warren’s webstore.

“Savor a warm, slightly salty beverage of your choice in this union-made mug as you contemplate all the good a wealth tax could do: universal childcare, student debt cancellation, universal free college, and more,” adds the site.

“I’ve paid over $10 billion in taxes,” said billionaire Bill Gates when asked to comment on Warren’s ‘Ultra Wealth’ tax. “If I had to pay $20 billion, it’s fine. But when you say I should pay $100 billion, OK then I’m starting to do a little math about what I have left over. You really want the incentive system to be there, and you can go a long way without threatening that.”

BAN BILLIONAIRES! AOC Says ‘No Person Should Have a Billion Dollars’ in the United States

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.03.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed wealthy Americans on social media this week; saying “no person should have a billion dollars” in the United States of America.

“‘Billionaires should not exist’ does not mean certain people should not exist. It means no person should have a billion dollars. The ascent of billionaires is a symptom & outcome of an immoral system that tells people affordable insulin is impossible but exploitation is fine,” posted AOC on Twitter.

Sen. Bernie Sanders made similar statements last month.

“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.
