Andrew Yang criticized Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax plan on Tuesday during the CNN/New York Times debate, stating that it would have “massive implementation problems” and would not “generate the revenue” projected.

Here’s the key exchange:

Erin Burnett: “Mr. Yang, your response. Would you impose a wealth tax?”

Yang: “Senator Warren is 100% right that we’re in the midst of the most extreme winner take all economy in history, and a wealth tax makes a lot of sense in principle. The problem is that it’s been tried in Germany, France, Denmark, Sweden, and all of those countries ended up repealing it because it had massive implementation problems and did not generate the revenue that they had projected.”

Warren’s “wealth tax” has even been criticized by the Washington Post editorial board, noting it "conveys a certain authoritarian odor."

As Americans for Tax Reform previously stated, a wealth tax would empower IRS agents to keep a list of all household assets, which is extremely intrusive.

In addition, the Warren “wealth tax” would be ruled unconstitutional, and as Yang stated, the tax has been repealed by the following countries: Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Luxembourg, Ireland, and Italy.

These countries found the tax to be unworkable and economically harmful.

Klobuchar: I Would Repeal “Significant Portions” of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Amy Klobuchar said she would repeal “significant portions” of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, including the corporate tax rate, during the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate on Tuesday night.

“I would repeal significant portions of that tax bill that helped the rich, including what [Trump] did with the corporate tax rate,” said Klobuchar.

Klobuchar’s promise to repeal the tax cuts is a promise to raise taxes. If the tax cuts were repealed:

  • A family of four earning the median income of $73,000 would see a $2,000 tax increase.
  • A single parent (with one child) making $41,000 would see a $1,300 tax increase.
  • Millions of low and middle-income households would be stuck paying the Obamacare individual mandate tax.
  • Utility bills would go up in all 50 states as a direct result of the corporate income tax increase.  
  • Small employers will face a tax increase due to the repeal of the 20% deduction for small business income.
  • The USA would have the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world.
  • Taxes would rise in every state and every congressional district.
  • The Death Tax would ensnare more families and businesses.
  • The AMT would snap back to hit millions of households.
  • Millions of households would see their child tax credit cut in half.
  • Millions of households would see their standard deduction cut in half, adding to their tax complexity as they are forced to itemize their deductions and deal with the shoebox full of receipts on top of the refrigerator.

 

In Ohio, where the debate is, households who made the state average income of $54,021, received a tax cut of around $1,476.26, according to a recent Tax Foundation report.

Even left leaning news outlets confirm the good news about the GOP tax cuts:

CNN: “The facts are, most Americans got a tax cut.”

CNN: "In fact, estimates from both sides of the political spectrum show that the majority of people in the United States of America did receive a tax cut."

New York Times: "Most people got a tax cut."

Washington Post: “Most Americans received a tax cut.”

FactCheck.org: "Most people got some kind of tax cut in 2018 as a result of the law."

FactCheck.org: "The vast majority (82 percent) of middle-income earners — those with income between about $49,000 and $86,000 — received a tax cut that averaged about $1,050.

H&R Block: “The vast majority of people did get a tax cut.”

New York Times also noted the “sustained -- and misleading -- effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase.”

How the Trump Tax Cuts are Helping Texas

As President Trump visits Dallas today, it is important to point out the many ways Texans are benefiting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, signed into law by Trump.

Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: 

Households earning the average income of $59, 206 received an average tax cut of around $1,324, according to a report by the Tax Foundation.

Doubled child tax credit: 2,092,560 Texas households are benefiting from the TCJA’s doubling of the child tax credit.

Standard deduction: 9,284,760 Texas households are benefiting from the TCJA’s doubling of the standard deduction.

Obamacare individual mandate tax relief: 620,830 Texas households are benefiting from the TCJA’s elimination of the Obamacare individual mandate tax. Most households hit with this tax made less than $50,000 per year.

Lower utility bills: As a direct result of the TCJA’s corporate rate cut, Texans are paying lower utility bills. Lower electric, water, and gas bills help households each month, and also help small businesses operating on slim profit margins. Texas examples of utilities passing on tax savings to customers include – but are not limited to – Center Point EnergyEl Paso Electric CompanyEntergy TexasOncor Electric Delivery, and Quadvest.

Thanks to the TCJA’s corporate tax rate cut – from 35 percent to 21 percent – and the TCJA’s 20 percent tax cut for small businesses, employers of all sizes are hiring, expanding, increasing pay and benefits, and paying special tax-cut bonuses:

Kanga Roof (Austin, Texas) – Tripled their revenue and was able to double their payroll.

“Round Rock roofing business co-owner Stacie Feller credited Trump with boosting businesses’ confidence.

“She and her husband Scott’s Kanga Roof Austin has has more than tripled its revenue and more than doubled its payroll, to 24 employees, since January 2017, she said.”

“I’m very proud to say with some of the tax cuts, some of the things, this year, 2019, was the first year we were able to offer health insurance and a simple [Individual Retirement Account] plan for our employees,” she said. “We just couldn’t afford it before.” -- Aug. 29, 2019 Dallas Morning News article

Cox Manufacturing (San Antonio, Texas) -- The company is hiring new employees and speeding up new facility construction:

For Cox, those savings may give the manufacturer some much-needed relief as it adds staff and equipment necessary to handle the increased orders the company’s been receiving over the last month or so, President Bill Cox said.

“The biggest benefit I think is not the tax savings, but the activity that’s going on. It’s just like crazy,” said Cox, whose company employs 150 and makes machined and other parts. “I had some older machines that we wanted to phase out and I just couldn’t believe how quickly they sold. I’m getting pressure to release them sooner than I wanted to.”

Demand has picked up dramatically since the bill was signed into law, he said. His backlog of orders has grown from six to eight weeks in December to 10 to 12 weeks now, and he’s having to move up construction of a new 8,000-square-foot manufacturing plant by at least a year in order to meet the growth.

“We needed it yesterday,” he said of the new facility.

Cox said his backlog of orders is starting to cost him work. The new factory and equipment — which he hopes to bring online this year — will cost at least $1.5 million, create 15 jobs and would add to his 54,000 square feet of existing manufacturing space. - February 7, 2018, San Antonio Express News article excerpt

Capital City Hospitality Group (Austin, Texas) – Hired over 50 employees as result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

“I’m a big promoter of the tax reform, and I think it’s working,” said Round Rock hotel company owner Hitesh Patel.

“Patel, chief executive of Capital City Hospitality Group and immediate past chairman of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association, said the 2017 tax law’s provisions on exchanges of real estate have helped his company expand by more than 50 employees.” – Aug. 29, 2019 Dallas Morning News article

Village Foods & Pharmacy (Bryan, Texas) - employee bonuses, implement a 401(k) program:

Village Foods & Pharmacy Said They Were Able To Provide Employee Bonuses And Implement A 401(k) Program. - US Chamber of Commerce

Home Instead Senior Care -- Samuel and Brandy Patton, franchise owners  (El Paso, Texas) – As noted by the International Franchise Association, tax savings will help the Pattons achieve their goal of hiring 50 people in 2018:

“We fully plan on hiring more employees,” said Samuel Patton, who owns a Home Instead Senior Care franchise with his wife, Brandy, in El Paso, Texas. They’ve set a goal of hiring 50 people in 2018. “This tremendously helps with that endeavor as this money will assist with prerequisite items such as training, drug screens and background checks,” he said of the tax savings. “We will spend more money on advertising in our local community as well as increase training programs for current employees,” Patton added. – April 17, 2018 International Franchise Association report.  (The IFA has a growing list of franchisees who have pledged to hire additional workers, raise wages, purchase new equipment, or expand territories/purchase new franchise locations due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.)

Camp Construction Services (Houston, Texas) – This Houston-based full-service general contractor awarded its employees $500 tax reform bonuses in December 2017:

In a note to employees, CEO Roger C. Camp wrote:

              Campers,

I’m sure you have heard of the new tax reform that Congress just passed. Because of the reduction in Corporate taxes we, as will all businesses, benefit from this tax cut. We believe that YOU are the reason for our success. And now that we will be giving less of our hard earned income to the federal government, we can share some of it with you. Please look for a $500 “tax cut” bonus in your next payroll run. Merry Christmas!

Center Point Energy (Houston, Texas) - The utility is passing on tax savings to customers:

CenterPoint Energy, the largest natural gas utility in the state with more than 400,000 customers, has proposed to reduce its rates by $19.2 million beginning in October.

CenterPoint filed the request with the Arkansas Public Service Commission on Friday in response to an order by the commission to reduce rates as a result of the federal tax law change passed in December. Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that reduced the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent.

If the commission approves the lowered rate, Houston-based CenterPoint's rates would drop 9.5 percent on bills from October to January and 7.3 percent in January. For a customer with a bill of $100, it would fall to $90.50 under the first scenario and to $92.70 under the second scenario.

"Tax reform is a win for customers and reduced costs are being returned to them through various mechanisms or rate proceedings within each of our operating jurisdictions," said Alicia Dixon, CenterPoint's spokesman. – August 28, 2018, Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette article excerpt

Beck Manufacturing International (Converse, Texas) - Building a new facility, hiring new employees, doubling company’s capacity

Tom Beck, vice president of operations at Beck Manufacturing International in Converse, said he expects his company, which builds cement mixer bodies that mount on trucks, will see a reduction of close to 10 percent in its tax rate.

The savings will flow into Beck Manufacturing International investments, including an under construction manufacturing site that will double his company’s capacity in Converse, he said.

“That money that we hang on to … that’s absolutely going directly toward the new facility that will employ more people,” Beck said.  - February 7, 2018, San Antonio Express-News article excerpt

Biden on Warren Dodging Middle Class Tax Question: “This is Ridiculous. Absolutely Ridiculous.”

Posted by Adam Sabes on Thursday, October 17th, 2019, 1:57 PM PERMALINK

Joe Biden slammed Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to give an honest answer to the middle class tax question, calling it “absolutely ridiculous” during a campaign stop in Columbus, Ohio on Wednesday, according to a video by Bo Erickson.

Biden: “It's fascinating, that, um, a person who has a plan for everything, has no plan for the single, most consequential issue in this election, in the minds of the American people. It’ll cost them more. And, you know, credibility matters. It matters. And the question that I think that Senator Warren is going to have to face, she’s going to have to tell the truth. Or the question we raised about whether or not she’s going to be candid and honest with the American people. I mean, look, I'm not picking on Elizabeth Warren, but this is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.”

Biden continued later on, saying: “And I'm hoping that, um, Senator Warren gets to the point that after months and months and months will tell you how she's going to pay for this plan.”

Warren is avoiding the reality that middle-class Americans would have to pay more in taxes -- as Bernie Sanders notes is necessary -- to fund “Medicare for All.”

"Yeah, [we'd have to] raise taxes on the middle class," Sanders told a CNN reporter after the July debate.

Warren repeatedly dodged the question in September during an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. An exasperated Colbert tried to offer advice about the "taxes that perhaps you're not mentioning."

In July, Warren got into a heated exchange with MSNBC's Chris Matthews while refusing to answer Matthews' question on middle class tax hikes. She also dodged the question during the CNN and ABC debates.

In POLITICO Jeff Greenfield noted that Warren could be holding back an admission that Medicare for All will lead to higher taxes for the middle-class because she is worried about losing voters.

Greenfield wrote:

This leaves an obvious question that will follow her through the campaign: “Bernie Sanders is frank enough to acknowledge the obvious, and then explain it. Why won’t you?” The answer may be as simple as: If you say you will raise middle class taxes, an unmeasurable but likely significant number of voters simply will not bother to wait for the rest of your explanation.

As ATR noted earlier, Medicare for All would require anywhere from $32 trillion and $36 trillion in higher taxes over the course of the next decade.

Warren Dodges Middle Class Tax Question Six Times During Debate Night

Posted by Adam Sabes on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019, 1:24 PM PERMALINK

Elizabeth Warren dodged the middle class tax question a total of six times on Tuesday night, all during and after the CNN/New York Times debate.

These six dodges are in addition to the 17 that Americans for Tax Reform has already recorded, making a grand total of at least 23 dodges so far.

After the debate, Warren dodged multiple questions from CNN and MSNBC reporters asking if middle class taxes would go up under her Medicare for All plan.

Warren is avoiding the reality that middle-class Americans would have to pay more in taxes -- as Bernie Sanders notes is necessary -- to fund “Medicare for All.”

"Yeah, [we'd have to] raise taxes on the middle class," Sanders told a CNN reporter after the July debate.

Buttigieg Grills Warren for Dodging the Middle Class Tax Question

Pete Buttigieg grilled Elizabeth Warren for not answering the middle class tax question during the CNN/New York Times debate on Tuesday night.

Reporter: Mayor Buttigieg, you say Senator Warren has been "evasive" about how she's going to pay for Medicare for All, what's your response?"

Buttigieg: "We saw it tonight. A yes or no answer that didn't get a yes or no answer. Look, this is why people here in the Midwest are so frustrated with Washington in general and Capitol Hill in particular. Your signature, senator, is to have a plan for everything, except this. No plan has been laid out to explain how a multi trillion dollar hole in this Medicare for All plan that Senator Warren is putting forward is supposed to get filled in."

Warren is avoiding the reality that middle-class Americans would have to pay more in taxes -- as Bernie Sanders notes is necessary -- to fund “Medicare for All.”

"Yeah, [we'd have to] raise taxes on the middle class," Sanders told a CNN reporter after the July debate.

Yesterday, ATR released a compilation video of the 17 times that Warren has dodged the question.

Warren repeatedly dodged the question in September during an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. An exasperated Colbert tried to offer advice about the "taxes that perhaps you're not mentioning."

In July, Warren got into a heated exchange with MSNBC's Chris Matthews while refusing to answer Matthews' question on middle class tax hikes. She also dodged the question during the CNN and ABC debates.

In POLITICO Jeff Greenfield noted that Warren could be holding back an admission that Medicare for All will lead to higher taxes for the middle-class because she is worried about losing voters.

Greenfield wrote:

This leaves an obvious question that will follow her through the campaign: “Bernie Sanders is frank enough to acknowledge the obvious, and then explain it. Why won’t you?” The answer may be as simple as: If you say you will raise middle class taxes, an unmeasurable but likely significant number of voters simply will not bother to wait for the rest of your explanation.

As ATR noted earlier, Medicare for All would require anywhere from $32 trillion and $36 trillion in higher taxes over the course of the next decade.

Biden: I Will Raise the Capital Gains Tax to 39.5%

Joe Biden said during the CNN/NYT Democratic debate that he'd double the capital gains tax rate to almost 40% from 20%.

Biden: "I would raise the capital gains tax to the highest rate of 39.5 percent, I would double it."

In September, Biden said he'd double the capital gains rate to 40%.

Since the launch of his presidential campaign, Biden has repeatedly said the capital gains tax was “too low.” Biden’s comments and his long Senate voting record mean voters should expect him to push for capital gains tax hikes if elected.

During his time in the Senate, Biden consistently voted against tax cuts on capital gains.

In 2003, Biden voted against the reduction in the capital gains rate from 20 percent to 15 percent. In 2005 and 2006, Biden voted against extending the 15 percent rate.

In 2012, then-Vice President Biden and President Obama insisted the cap gains rate revert to 20 percent.

Biden and Obama had already piled on another 3.8 percent capital gains tax hike -- the Net Income Investment Tax -- one of the many tax increases in Obamacare. The 3.8 percent tax hike took effect Jan. 1, 2013.

Increasing the capital gains tax burden would harm Americans’ ability to build a nest egg and hurt the value of their homes, farms, and businesses.

Currently, long-term capital gains are taxed at zero percent, 15 percent, or 20 percent, depending on household income level the year the gain was realized. Households subject to Obamacare’s 3.8 percent Net Income Investment Tax pay a 23.8% rate. 

In August Biden called for a capital gains tax rate increase to 39.6 percent. If Biden is elected and raises the rate to his most recently stated 40 percent, the top capital gains tax rate would end up at 43.8 percent.

Elizabeth Warren dodged the middle class again during the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate, which is taking place in Otterbein, Ohio tonight.

Reporter: "Will you raise taxes on the middle class to pay for, it yes or no?"

Warren: Dodge

Reporter: "To be clear,  Senator Sanders acknowledges he will raise taxes to pay for Medicare for all, will you acknowledge it too?"

Warren: Dodge

This is the 20th time that Warren has dodged the middle class tax question.

Warren is avoiding the reality that middle-class Americans would have to pay more in taxes -- as Bernie Sanders notes is necessary -- to fund “Medicare for All.”

"Yeah, [we'd have to] raise taxes on the middle class," Sanders told a CNN reporter after the July debate.

Americans for Tax Reform today released a video compilation of the 17 times Elizabeth Warren has dodged the middle class tax question.

Warren has said on multiple occasions that she is “with Bernie” on Medicare for All, but refuses to answer if middle class taxes will go up under Medicare for All, as Bernie Sanders has openly admitted

"Elizabeth Warren won’t admit the obvious. She will impose broad-based tax hikes on the middle class,” said Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist.

Norquist: Warren Carbon Tax Will Turn Into Value Added Tax

Today, Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist was a guest on Fox Business Network’s Varney and Co. and said that Elizabeth Warren’s carbon tax will turn into a value added tax.

Grover Norquist: “She'll do two things. She'll say, look over here, I'm gonna have a wealth tax. So and then while you do that, she'll put in a carbon tax and energy tax, which hits the middle class. And that turns into a VAT, because at the end of the day, you're not going to just tax energy.

Norquist continued and said that a VAT only encourages more government and higher taxes.

Every European country that adopted a VAT saw all of its taxes increased more rapidly after that than before. So just makes the government bigger and stronger and more hungry,” Norquist said.

 Warren said she was in favor of a carbon tax during a CNN “Climate Crisis” town hall on Sept. 3.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo: "Yes to a carbon tax?" 

Elizabeth Warren: "Yes."

In addition, she also supports a “climate adjustment fee” which will tax companies importing products into the United States based on “How much carbon was used to produce” it, according to Warren.
