Warren says she wants billionaires to ‘stop being freeloaders’
This is a message to the economic totalitarians like Ms. Warren. YOU WILL NOT DESTROY what is left of economic freedom in this country. That will not happen. We will not let you. You think people have "resisted" Trump?
You Ms. Warren should focus on crony capitalism, the partnership of government and private interests. Focus on the enabling factor, GOVERNMENT.
But no, the economic totalitarians want to expand government. Ms. Warren, one who rails against corporations (though she's greatly benefited from their largess over the years), doesn't understand that it's not government versus business, it's the people versus cronyism and the government is the most crony entity of all.
A billionaire that made their money though hard work, insight, and building a better mousetrap (such people exist) does much good for this country. He or she creates jobs. He or she creates wealth. Not to mention piles of taxes already.
Freeloaders, crony billionaires, exist. We've spent the better part of a decade chronicling their exploits. But most are anything but freeloaders. You Ms. Warren might be jealous of them. You might wish secretly that you were one of them. But Ms. "I taught 1 class at Harvard, a job I got in some part because I lied about my ancestry, and got paid hundreds of thousands per year" shouldn't be talking to anyone about "freeloaders."
“I want these billionaires to stop being freeloaders,” the Democratic senator said on “Mad Money.” “I want them to pick up their fair share. That’s how we make a system that works not just for the rich and the powerful, but works for all of us.”
Warren, who is considering a 2020 run for president, proposed a “wealth tax”on Americans with over $50 million in assets earlier this month. She has also criticized former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz — who is also weighing a 2020 presidential bid — for thinking he can “buy the presidency.”
Please, at least Schultz, and this is by NO means an endorsement, has built a business. He's employed people. He's helped many other people become well off. Many people have health insurance through Starbucks because of his policies. He's contributed greatly to this country. And he's the "freeloader"? I don't think so.
