For most Americans, paying your taxes is your contribution to schools, roads, and bridges that everyone uses. For the ultra-rich, it’s a nuisance to be avoided at all costs.
It’s time for a fair system, for everyone. To start, it’s time for a wealth tax.

Maybe there’s a problem with an economic system which sees a handful of billionaires grow their wealth massively during a pandemic, and zoom around space in rocket ships, while millions of people struggle to keep a roof over their heads in the richest country on Earth.

Broadband expansion is the key to creating a 21st-century economy, and we must prioritize closing the digital divide in rural communities.
That means jobs, wealth, and opportunity for everyone—from rural California to North Carolina and beyond.https://t.co/AFjRvaaFeb

How much richer are American billionaires since the start of the pandemic? $ 1.8 TRILLION.
If they paid just a bit more in taxes, we’d have billions of dollars for health care, education, climate action, child care, and MUCH more.
Time for a wealth tax.
