Billionaire tax criticized as Biden pushes for budget deal


-The White House had to rethink its tax strategy after one key Democrat, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., objected to her party’s initial proposal to raise tax rates on wealthy Americans by undoing the Trump-era tax cuts on those earning beyond $400,000. Sinema also opposed lifting the 21% corporate tax rate. With a 50-50 Senate, Biden has no votes to spare in his party.

-Instead, to win over Sinema and others, the White House has been floating a new idea of taxing the assets of billionaires and another that would require corporations to pay a 15% minimum tax, regardless of if they show any profits. Those both appear to be gaining traction with another pivotal Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who told reporters he supported new ways to ensure the wealthy to pay their “fair share.”


My 2 cents opinion:
There has got to be a way to force billionaires to pay their fair share in spite of the many legal ways for billionaires to hide assets. A small percentage off their riches means a lot to the many who are struggling.

Un pequeño porcentaje de sus riquezas significa mucho para los muchos que están luchando.
