UBI would help with eldercare by both helping people pay for it and also supporting unpaid carers. UBI would help people afford housing via both rent and home ownership. UBI would help people afford electric vehicles. UBI could also be paired with increased taxes on corporations. https://t.co/YSbtUuRETP

We’ve seen time and time again that the ultra-wealthy skip out on taxes as much as they can. My Stop CHEATERS Act would make sure that the 1% and powerful corporations pay their fair share.
If hardworking Americans can do it, so can they.

“Biden & Senate Dems should ask themselves if playing patty-cake w/ GOP senators is really worth the dismantling of people’s voting rights, setting the planet on fire, allowing massive corporations & the wealthy to not pay their fair share, etc.” – @AOChttps://t.co/VnBfPR3jhm

Why not a minimum state corporate tax — analogous to the minimum national corporate tax that the Biden administration just negotiated — so big corporations could no longer play states against each other to get fat tax rebates and subsidies?

Hmm. When the GOP passed legislation to provide a $ 1 trillion tax break to corporations & the 1% without a single Democratic vote, I didn’t hear my Republican colleagues say “Wait. It has to be bipartisan.” Please don’t tell me we can’t use the same tools to help working people.

I’ve been in or around politics for over a half-century now.
I’ve watched as corporations ransacked our system.
In 1952, the corporate share of federal tax revenue was 32%. In 2020, it was down to 7%.
Here’s how we break the corporate oligarchy and return power to the people. pic.twitter.com/OP5ghvCv5y
