Our Democracy is up against the Trump International Crime Syndicate

“The Trump Org, as part of an international crime syndicate (including Russian mobsters) engaged in a pattern of crimes intended to sway the election.”

"It’s clear that members of the criminal enterprise can’t stop committing crimes—even after they are indicted. Paul Manafort engaged in witness tampering while awaiting trial. Roger Stone made criminal threats against the judge. Now there’s talk that Trump’s lawyers dangled a pardon to Michael Cohen to keep him from “flipping” (what low level mobsters do) Trump has been openly obstructing the probe all along. He vowed to “fight back” (obstruct) last year."

Tax Justice Now (website)

Anyone checked out this website "TaxJusticeNow.org"? It has a neat calculator showing how a weath tax on the richest 1% would affect Billionaires if it had been implemented in 1982.

For example Jeff Bezos was worth $160 Billion in 2018 and he would still be worth $95.3 Billion if there had been an ongoing wealth tax that had been implemented in 1982.

Notice you can change between tax plans of Biden, Sanders and Warren to compare the effects each plan could have. Don't know what the numbers are for Buttigieg's tax plan if he has one.

Think how those tax dollars would have stimulated our economy if that money was in the hands of working class families. It's time for TaxJusticeNow.org .

Trump Tax Cuts Helped Billionaires Pay Less Taxes Than Working Class - Forbes

Bill Gates agrees and has previously said, “There’s no doubt that what we want government to do in terms of better education and better health care means that we need to collect more in taxes. And there’s no doubt that as we raise taxes, we can have most of that additional money come from those who are better off... I need to pay higher taxes.”

Before your palms start sweating – don’t worry – I don’t think we should raise your taxes. We are talking about the top .01%. Those who own yachts and airplanes.


The Rich Really Do Pay Lower Taxes Than You NYT

"Ask yourself this: If efforts to tax the super-rich were really doomed to fail, why would so many of the super-rich be fighting so hard to defeat those efforts?"
