At a time of massive income and wealth inequality, when the top 1% owns more wealth than the bottom 92%, and when billionaires have gotten $ 4 TRILLION richer during the pandemic — it is not the billionaire class that needs help today, it is the working class of this country.

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.
