Taxing the rich is extremely popular: ’s proposal for a 70 percent top rate polls well, and Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax polls even better with a crushing 60-21 victory that includes majority support from Republicans
"Higher marginal tax rates are favored by 45 percent of the public over 32 percent who say it’s a bad idea, while the wealth tax scores a crushing 60-21 victory that includes majority support from Republicans."
The 70% top marginal tax rate floated by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez polls well. Elizabeth Warren’s proposed wealth tax on large fortunes polls even better.
Dear Howard Schultz: if you’re looking for bold ideas with broad bipartisan appeal for your “centrist” presidential campaign, may I suggest my #UltraMillionaireTax?
The public is mildly favorable to the idea of a 70 percent top bracket and enthusiastic about Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax
I know that you've thought a lot about taxes. What's your take on this? Will taxing the wealthy in some forum have traction in 2020? I could see it playing out in the primary, but wonder if it will have legs in the general race.
