Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that a final deal for President Joe Biden ’s $1.75 trillion infrastructure plan is in reach, even as a proposed tax on billionaires to pay for the package’s social measures has come under fire. Read more:
Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) reportedly described the 'billionaire tax' proposed by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) as 'a stunt.'
Democrats have until October 31 to reach a unanimous agreement that would allow them to pass both their infrastructure bill and Biden's spending package, which they hope to pass using the Senate's budget reconciliation process. Meanwhile, the mere threat of a potential new tax on billionaires has reportedly resulted in some of the nation's wealthiest residents scrambling to find new ways of avoiding the possible tax.
Robert Willens, who advises major Wall Street players on tax issues, told Politico that he had been contacted by multiple people who work with American billionaires who are hoping to evade the tax if it becomes law. Willens said that if the tax does pass and survives likely legal challenges, it may be difficult for billionaires to escape paying the tax.
"This is going to be perhaps the most difficult tax we have ever seen in terms of trying to plan to minimize it," Willens predicted."I believe this is going to be the biggest challenge we have ever had." Read more: Newsweek »

Senate Democrats push for tax on billionaires to help fund spending planSenate Democrats are eyeing a tax on billionaires to help fund their social spending package amid pushback on income and corporate tax hikes. Figure that would raise 15 B, maybe. US Gov't spends approx 23 B PER DAY. What exactly is that rich tax going to get you? Change your spending habits! The irony in all of this is it’s a wealth tax until it isn’t. If they impose unrealized gains tax on the rich, what makes you so sure they won’t on you? The $250 billion it raises over 10 YEARS will be spent in minutes… if government was a stock, I would short it with both hands ClosingBell Tell me again who ran up the massive debt?

Democrats unveil billionaires' tax as Biden plan takes shapeSenate Democrats on Wednesday unveiled a new billionaires’ tax proposal designed to help pay for President Joe Biden ’s sweeping domestic policy package. What if they eliminated corporate tax incentives/subsidies (aka corporate welfare) for any company worth over a billion dollars. It would certainly crush Tesla, oil companies and the whole market but that’s coming soon enough anyway 🤌
Democrats unveil billionaires' tax proposal as they search for agreement on Biden planSenate Democrats unveil a proposed new entry in the tax code that would raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans — fewer than 800 people, all told. Poorly structured policy Unworkable pap. How do you measure “unrealized capital gains” on buildings, yachts or a Picasso? Do the “billionaires” get deductions when these values go down? In the end the brunt of this tax will fall on the middle class, eventually.
A top Democrat releases details of proposed billionaires taxThe wealthiest 700 Americans would face tougher tax rules and help fund President Biden's 'Build Back Better' agenda under a proposal released by Senate Finance Cmte. Chair Wyden. It's simple...stop giving away all the house money!!! Make everybody accountable. Put people to work, don't pay illegal immigrants health care and education...start controlling spending! The problem is politicians are afraid say no to potential voters! Please get it done.
