YOUNG ADULTS MOTIVATED by social issues and dissatisfied with the Trump administration turned out in record numbers to vote in the 2018 midterms and backed Democratic candidates by historic margins, initial analysis shows.

Thirty-one percent of voters aged 18 to 29 cast ballots in the 2018 midterm elections, shattering turnout rates from the past quarter century, according to an estimate by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University. This year's turnout was at least 10 percent higher than for the 2014 midterms, according to the center's estimates.

These are the ones that have announced and the ones who may run. So far my top

2 have not announced so I'll go with Warren for now.

Curious to know how many members of this group still post here? Not a poll, just a check in

for the Sanders Group.

ELIZABETH WARREN PROPOSES ANNUAL WEALTH TAX ON ULTRA-MILLIONAIRES

https://theintercept.com/2019/01/24/elizabeth-warren-proposes-annual-wealth-tax-on-ultra-millionaires/?menu=1

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN’S presidential campaign has rolled out a proposal for an annual tax on wealth, becoming the first major Democratic candidate to follow a recommendation outlined in Thomas Piketty’s blockbuster book “Capital in the Twenty-First Century.”

The proposal, according to two University of California, Berkeley, economists who are leading experts on wealth and inequality, would shrink the wealth of the superrich by $2.75 trillion over a 10-year period, while only affecting around 75,000 U.S. households.

A paper distributed by Warren’s campaign announcing the proposal notes that the United States contains “an extreme concentration of wealth not seen in any other leading economy.” As UC Berkeley’s Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman have demonstrated, the top 0.1 percent has had their wealth share nearly triple between the late 1970s and 2016.

Warren actually endorsed the concept of a wealth tax five years ago, in an interview with Piketty and The Intercept’s Ryan Grim. Asked how a bill to tax wealth would sound after Piketty described it, Warren said, “Oh, I’m in, I’m in, I’m in — in on the notion that we have to rewrite our tax code.” She added that the tax code “has to reflect the importance of work and people who achieve and people who accomplish, over being born into wealth.”

What a delightful difference

Pure deflection. You can't refute my opinion that the media reports what gives them ratings

and doesn't investigate the facts so you go with "you're just like Trump". By the way, the media going with their talking points instead of facts and investigations has been documented here time after time.

I knew as AG she supported asset forfeiture before being charged with a crime

and that was a big issue as far as I was concerned but was not aware of her stand on these other issues. Thanks for the information.

As a Latina I can only say... That's the fucking truth!

Best comeback in the history of comebacks.

I'll be waiting till the end of time for you to prove what you and a libertarian hack are trying to

convince people that Bernie has said about immigrants.
