This makes the case for UBI, direct, monthly, permanent, no-strings-attached checks for all Americans. We created prosperity for this nation, this is our share in it: https://t.co/ropJL6z1LD pic.twitter.com/Z7lX89flJB

My Jobs Cabinet and I are hard at work making sure the working people of this country — the middle class — are no longer left out in the cold. We’re going to make sure they get to share in the benefits of a rising economy with the American Jobs Plan. pic.twitter.com/OCtwZ4fnWa

We should be auditing rich tax cheats more than poor grandmothers who claim a kid as a dependent. I’m happy to debate Republicans on this issue every day from now until 2022.
It’s time we properly fund the IRS and make the rich pay their fair share.

We are so chuffed about the response to the #BasicIncomeConversation Toolkit! We launched it just 3 weeks ago & we’re only a few away from 1,000 downloads. Give it a share today so we can hit 1,000 downloads & get more people talking about #BasicIncome https://t.co/K06tickOyi pic.twitter.com/NYqvyxO8Bd

55 of America’s largest corporations paid no taxes last year—a collective total of $ 8.5 billion owed. Even worse: many received millions of dollars in tax rebates.
Enough is enough. Let’s fix the IRS and ensure corporations pay their fair share.

In this country, there is an understanding that the level of income and wealth inequality we have now is unsustainable and immoral. The time is long overdue to demand the wealthiest people and the largest corporations in America start paying their share of federal income taxes. pic.twitter.com/LUWWP5VGJU

As a percentage of their wealth, billionaires have seen their taxes go down by 79% since 1980. Today, they pay a lower effective rate than middle-class Americans.
It’s time for the ultra-rich to pay their fair share. Wealth tax now.
