  1. Thank You Senator Warren for exposing that the Republican Party is no longer a political party/movement. It’s a criminal organization

      @Sue Zbell Stop posting the same stupid bs ……
      As the south became less racist it became more Republican…….
      Democrats are the party of the KKK Sen Byrd Democrat was in the Senate 50 years until 2010 a life long member of the KKK and your great racist candidate Biden eulogized him …….

      @SoCal Surfer16 This is 2020.We have to work together and move forward.

    • @Kath Casey Robin Hood …? *or* Hood Robbing.

    • Both Democrats and Republicans are crooked POS you will never hear the truth from either party just my opinion

    It’s recapturing wages that the wealthy have stolen from workers!

    The question isn’t just, “Why is this legal?”….

    The question is also, “Are you going to do anything about the parts of it that AREN’T legal???”

    Paying Ivanka about $750,000 in “con”sulting fees when she is a paid employee of the company is NOT LEGAL!

    Deducting $70,000 for haircuts can’t be LEGAL expenses deducted!

    Nobody should pay anything if you are middle class or under if he wins a second term… only fair right!!!

  5. What we need is 60% in the Congress 60% in the Senate and a Democratic president

  6. Remember how we held ADT accounting firm responsible by suing and winning?
    Sue all of big accounting firms including CHH, H&R, Bessimer, etc for not paying taxes on rich folks.

  7. It’s a wealth tax or the ordinary Americans will end up paying the nation national debt bill

  8. Senator Warren is brilliant.

  9. t’rump: “I’m like a really great business man!”
    Tax Returns: “Is that why you are $431 million in debt?”
    t’rump: 😠😡🤯
    America: 😎

    Ignore the polls and trolls.
    Vote too save democracy in America!
    Vote too big to rig!
    Vote country over party!
    🇺🇸🇺🇸Biden/Harris 🇺🇸🇺🇸

  11. This is not right!!!!!
    I, as a middle class, pay way too much in taxes and I don’t have millions for all of tax write offs. Sen. Warren should be made Secretary of Treasury. Not that dorky sycophantic to trump Menuchin

    Just because something is legal doesn’t make it ethical or moral.

    Pocahontas is right. We need the rich to finally pay their fair share. Why does a guy working at McDonald’s pay more tax in relation to his income than the president of the country?

    Stay calm, carry on and keep your eyes on the prize. This is historic. As appalled and ashamed as we may have felt last night, with the rest of the world watching, what if this is when we can finally, finally take some of those gigantic progressive leaps forward? There is so much hard work before all of us but what will Putin say of all his hard work in the face of tremendous American advancements in the realms of justice and equality? Vote ( as early as possible, complete the census ( and help two people outside your household do the same. We can do this together.

  15. Wow Mrs.Warren is very smart. Had a plan for everything. God bless.

    Love Warren, and her ideas!

  17. A wealth tax is compulsory.

  18. I have to pay my taxes, there’s no loop holes for me…🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

    • Trump supposedly payed more for someone to comb his hair than most of us make in a year and we pay way more in taxes.

    The Rt Hon Sen Warren I like that “Makes Swiss Cheese Look Solid”. America this woman makes a lot sense.

  20. Abigail Disney is saying this everywhere on social media …we also need universal health care where insurance is NOT tied to job
