Rising 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her demands for the ‘Green New Deal’ Monday; saying the radical proposal is “about fighting for economic justice” for American workers.

“The Green New Deal isn’t just about fighting climate change. It’s about fighting for environmental and economic justice. American workers can lead the global effort to end the climate crisis, build a green new economy, and create more than a million good jobs here at home,” posted Warren on social media.

A new report from the Wall Street Journal is shedding dramatic new light on Elizabeth Warren’s economic proposal; saying her recently revealed tax plan could bring rates over 100% for wealthy Americans.

“Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has unveiled sweeping tax proposals that would push federal tax rates on some billionaires and multimillionaires above 100%,” writes the Wall Street Journal.

“That prospect raises questions for taxpayers and the broader economy that experts are starting to ponder: Under which circumstances would taxpayers have to pay those rates? How might that change their behavior? And would investment and economic growth suffer?” adds the report.
