No matter how many average joes start thinking outside of that box, there's still going to be average joes. The world doesn't work without them. It's time to come to terms with this sh*t. Not everybody can be a bill gates, or even a lawyer, or doctor etc..

It's set up for the majority to be at the bottom. It's how this country works. The least they can do is start giving these n*ggas some kind of relief out here. It's enough. And this would be a great start
There has to be losers if there are winners, but you donít have to stay a loser which is the beauty about America

Yíall n*ggas love to hate on rich successful people donít yíall?
Itís easy
Hating is one of the easiest things you can do, living takes effort
n*ggas see these billionaires and what they accomplished and still only want to sit behind their phones and tap away at the screen begging to get some of their money because you stupid n*ggas are to lazy to make something out of yourself because the term hard work wrecks havoc on your immune systems

bi*ch a*s n*ggas, hope ya girl gets taxed while walking to her car late tonight

Im suprised gates took this approach didnt he donate half his wealth to charity or some sh*t
Youíre thinking of the giving Pledge where him and a lot of other billionaires have promised to give away at least half his wealth AFTER they die. No one wants to give that much away while they still alive. Also thereís a difference between giving away to charity and being able to determine which charities get what money and how it will be used versus the government just taking your money and using it inefficiently and ineffectively on lots of things you might not agree with.

The fact that he's admitting 20 billion is even an option for him is ridiculous in itself and is a win for Warren.


The numbers these n*ggas can just play around with



The average joe been getting fuccccked
Homeless people cost American taxpayers 19.2 billion dollars per year.


Bill Gates paying his fair share alone just took the burden of homelessness off the entire country.


Buh buh buh "how we gone pay fo dis stuff bruh"

It’s sad people really don’t understand how this works. You think you can just tax the rich and all the problems will go away. Even IF you taxed them 100% Warren still needs 51T for her plan.

If you want to tax the rich start with generational wealth that was built on the back of slaves and then redistribute it to the black community ... you know like they were supposed to do with 40 acres and a mule.

People think this Warren plan really has a chance in hell of passing need to look at history. It took 40+ years to get the ACA passed and it used all the political capital Obama had and still almost didn’t get done.

Now you think Warren is going to pass a 52T bill that is relying on two additional major legislations (i.e. Immigration) IF she’s elected when Amerikkkas infrastructure is crumbling?

Some of y’all can believe in pota of gold at the end of the rainbow but I’m a realist and a lot of people sound like miserable haters not living the life they want and project their envy and jealousy on entrepreneurs/people who went out created that life.

You would get much farther going to these billionaires and showing them a viable plan and asking if they would contribute than run around getting the mob to attack them over their wealth.

Anybody with 10M+ (Some with less) have an exit plan IF sh*t hits the fan in the US. If by some miracle that BS Passed the number of millionaires and billionaires in the US would drastically decrease and start-up companies would flee the US like the plague. Leaving who? The middle class to pay for all of it ...

Why would they tax a persons net worth and not income for that year?
To incentivize investment in the US economy. Thatís actually a major underlying policy of tax deductions/exemptions.

If weíre going to excuse you from being taxed we want that money going into the economy to help US workers and US industry. When wealth just sits in an account accumulating interest it does nothing.

Thatís a bit oversimplifies especially considering the lack of progression in the wealth tax, but in general, thatís why.

It cosrs us 10.5 billion, and if we spent the money to build all of them housing? It would only cost a little over 7

Watch the documentary about him on Netflix. Youíd change your mind if youíre being objective.
really? does he talk about spreading blatant, agenda-driven propaganda?

being objective doesn't mean being dazzled by wealth, if you go into the documentary thinking Bill Gates is an apex level human being, then of course, you're going to connect with a 3-hour infomercial for his foundation

every time i see an interview with the dude, i see a guy who thinks he's better than everyone else

i'm not impressed by someone who needs to plaster their name all over everything and donates pennies compared to their worth, value and income

people act like Gates has this mindblowing resume of philanthropy when it's paltry at best compared to his resources

Someone tell Bill to shut the fu*k up and pay up
Bill Gates doesn't hoard his riches. He's putting it to use though the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

 Verdict said
They still get taxed yearly on earned income, but they also get a 2% tax on all a*sets. These scheming fu*ks can store money away on valuable a*sets like stocks, bonds, etc. They can purchase million dollar art pieces that never loses value, or anything of high value, and never get taxed on any of it.
Getting taxed on property is the personal a*sets is the stupidest idea ever --- there's no realistic way of even handling such a task. Warrens ideas are horrible. Y'all keep getting behind her and we'll be looking at Trump for another 4 years. Our top 3 candidates have some of the worst ideas...Biden is trash all around, Bernie & Warren have their hearts in the right place, but they're both taking the tax the rich ideas to the extreme.

whats stopping these guys from giving up their us citizenship and taking their wealth to another country this is a serious question I am 100% retarded
Some people have done that, however A U.S. Passport is the gold standard when traveling internationally. Furthermore which country are you going to be trading it in for? Most western developed countries would still have high tax rates than what Warren is proposing.
