@RBReich: PSA: There is absolutely nothing “moderate” about obstructing the most critical investment in the American people since the New Deal.

@RBReich: Dems on the House Ways and Means Committee didn’t want to close the “stepped-up-basis at death” loophole because they don’t want to close the spigot of election contributions from the super-wealthy. Will Dems on the Senate Finance Committee be more courageous?

@RBReich: Reminder: Republicans wouldn’t cry voter fraud (with zero proof) if they thought the odds were in their favor.

@RBReich: Joe Manchin asks, “what’s the urgency,” as extra unemployment benefits expire, millions face eviction, Covid rages on, California wildfires spread, and New York and Louisiana are under water. Hello?

@RBReich: As Republicans fear-monger about Democrats’ proposed tax increases on corporations and the rich, remember: Tax cuts for corporations don’t create jobs and grow the economy.Trickle-down economics is a sham.

@RBReich: Child care. Universal pre-K. Free community college. Paid leave. Medicare expansion. Climate action. Taxes on the rich and corporations. It’s all in the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build a fairer America.

@RBReich: Don’t let Republicans demagogue Biden’s family plan. Its $3.5 trillion cost is only 1.2 percent of America’s expected GDP over next decade. It would grow the economy by investing in education and childcare. And be paid for with higher taxes on the wealthy and big corporations.

@RBReich: This week Dems consider whether to put a 2% tax on stock buybacks. I hope they do. It would bring in $105 billion in 10 years and discourage corporations from pumping up shares of stock to the benefit of CEOs and big investors rather than investing the cash. See our video below.
