A small tax on the ultra wealthy like @JeffBezos could fund vital priorities. Some fortunes dramatically increased during the pandemic. @RepTomSuozzi calls it a Patriot Tax. Investing in America’s families and jobs is patriotic. https://t.co/pYfclacVHI

If Jeff Bezos, the richest man alive worth $ 188 billion, can afford an $ 8.4 billion acquisition of MGM and a $ 500 million 417-foot yacht with a helipad, you know what?
