Elizabeth Warren likes taxes and she’s running for president, so it makes sense that she would come out with a plan to tax the country’s wealthiest people.
Over the weekend, Warren complained about a billionaire buying a yacht with a theater. Oh the horror!
This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a "superyacht" with its own iMax theater. I'm pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt. https://t.co/Gk4ifAkxdT

Also, over the weekend former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that he’s considering a presidential run as an independent. This was just too much for Democrats to handle. The outrage began immediately!
Now, Elizabeth Warren is upset about a possible run from the billionaire CEO. Apparently, she’s worried that he’ll end her campaign before it inevitably crashes and burns on its own.
Schultz criticized Warren’s tax plan, calling it ridiculous and that it would never pass. Well, Warren just wasn’t going to stand for that and tweeted her response, calling it “ridiculous” for a billionaire to think he can buy the presidency.
What's “ridiculous” is billionaires who think they can buy the presidency to keep the system rigged for themselves while opportunity slips away for everyone else. The top 0.1%, who'd pay my #UltraMillionaireTax, own about the same wealth as 90% of America. It's time for change. https://t.co/D04G5fNvpa
