    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has proposed a "wealth tax" on some of the richest Americans.

    The new tax from Warren, who recently announced her bid to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020, would only apply to Americans with more than $50 million in assets.

    Her Twitter announcement on Thursday came hours after an economist who advises her told CNBC he believed the proposal would soon be made official

    Ranked 28th in the Senate with an estimated net worth of $7,820,514 in 2015.

    Now she’s had thre years to build on that so $30-50 spread isn’t a bad guess.

    Her assets probably exceed $50 mil, but she will embed an obscure and hidden clause in her wealth tax that exempts native Americans from paying it...

    If this ever comes about be sure there will be a loop hole for liberals and progressives as long as they are genorous donors to the dem cause.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.
