Warren Isn’t Done With You Yet. She Needs More Taxes for Free Child Care

We’ve been warning about presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s threats to raise income taxes to 70% and to confiscate your savings in the form of a “wealth tax.” No sooner do we issue one warning then Warren comes up with another idea that will be financed by taking even more of your wealth and income.

As described in this article, Warren’s newest proposal is universal child care on top of the universal health care and free college that she has already proposed. Of course, this universal child care plan will need funding.

Costs are estimated at $700 billion over 10 years, but as with all such estimates actual costs will be much higher, due to bureaucratic waste and program expansion over time. No problem! Warren wants an “ultra-millionaire tax” (on top of her 70% income tax) to raise $2.75 trillion additional revenue to support free child care and more.

The chance of such programs being enacted in the short run is small. Even if a Democrat wins the White House in 2020, the Senate is likely to remain in Republican hands and they can block this kind of legislation.

Still, the fact that this is being discussed openly means that it’s on the public policy agenda and it may just be a matter of time before something like it is enacted into law. In the meantime, wealthy Americans will begin their exit plans to get out of the United States and move to Puerto Rico, Ireland or Monaco before such taxes come into effect. The tax may be delayed but the economic head winds start now.

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

HERE’S ANOTHER ELITE WITH ANOTHER PLAN TO TAX AWAY YOUR WEALTH

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation. The latest Trojan horse the elites are riding to take your money is climate change. The climate does change over long periods of time for reasons that are not well understood except that they

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
