We need to address the growing power of billionaires, corporations, and their lobbyists as they rig the system and rules in their favor. It’s time for a #WealthTax to make ultra-millionaires pay their fair share.

I’ll be joining Rachel @Maddow tonight on MSNBC to talk about the new #WealthTax bill that I introduced with @RepJayapal and @CongBoyle today. I hope you’ll tune in!

A two-cent #WealthTax on fortunes above $50 million would help level the playing field a little bit to #BuildBackBetter and make investments in America’s future.

Happening tonight!

RSVP on Facebook and join us tonight for a conversation about how we can #MakeCareCount.

COVID-19 has reinforced that care work is critical infrastructure in our country. I hope you’ll join @RepBowman, @RepNikema, @aijenpoo and me – along with the #MakeCareCount campaign – for an important discussion at 7:30 PM ET about the #CareForAllAgenda.

A good idea worth broad support: The Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act would raise ** $3 trillion ** over 10 years from the richest 100,000 households (0.05%), without raising taxes on the 99.95% with under $50 million of wealth.

Our tax system is so tilted that families in the top 0.1% pay about 3.2% of their wealth in taxes, while the 99% pay about 7.2%. We need a #WealthTax so the richest Americans pay taxes on all their wealth - like their stock portfolios, diamonds, yachts, and art collections.

A #WealthTax is critical for raising revenue, and that revenue is critical for raising opportunity. We build a future for all of our kids by investing in opportunity. This is one way we can make this government work for everyone – not just the rich and powerful.

The powerful and privileged have spent decades bending Congress to their will. We need to level the playing field, and that means the richest of the rich must pay their fair share in taxes, just like working families already do. Glad to be in this fight with @SenWarren.

Billionaire wealth is 40% higher now than when the COVID crisis began – but our tax system is still tilted toward the ultra-rich. Today @RepJayapal, @CongBoyle and I are introducing our #WealthTax bill to make the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.

The obscene wealth inequality in America is no accident. It is the direct result of policies that push wealth up, and the people at the top who hoard it. We need @SenWarren's wealth tax so we can make the ultra-millionaires and billionaires pay and build back better for all.

It is time for a #WealthTax in America. Tune in live as @RepJayapal, @CongBoyle and I announce our new bill to make the ultra-rich and powerful pay their fair share.

A #WealthTax provides money for President Biden’s #BuildBackBetter agenda. Policies like expanding the caregiving economy – everything from child care to nursing homes – rebuilding infrastructure, high quality k-12 education, and tuition-free public college and technical schools.

A fair tax system means we can invest in child care, infrastructure, and high quality public schools to give every family in America the opportunity to succeed. That's why I'm proud to cosponsor @SenWarren, @RepJayapal, and @CongBoyle’s bill for a #WealthTax.

Today, I will join @SenWarren in sponsoring our legislation to level the playing field for middle class families and others. The #WealthTax is a two-cent per dollar tax on those with a net worth over $50 million --

How can you watch U.S. billionaires get $1,300,000,000,000 richer during a pandemic and not think the system needs to change?

@SenWarren is right. We need a #WealthTax.

Working families pay 7.2% of their wealth in taxes. But the richest Americans pay only 3.2%.

This is backwards, especially when you remember that the latter increased their wealth during this pandemic by over $1 trillion.

America needs a #WealthTax.

Here's our scoring of the wealth tax introduced today in Congress by @SenWarren, @RepJayapal and @CongBoyle

Because of the upsurge in billionaire wealth, a wealth tax would generate even more revenue than what we estimated in 2019

A #WealthTax will help create a more fair and just economy, while building up our community's health care, schools, and green union jobs.

Thank you Sen Warren, Rep Jayapal, and Rep. Boyle for introducing the Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act!
