Disgusting and despicable!


"Harris’ rollout is a 3-part plan covering all medical essentials exempting households below $100,000, a higher income threshold for middle-class families living in high-cost areas"

$100,000/yr is NOT high income in high-cost areas!! Is this woman on drugs?

"To pay for these changes, she will tax Wall Street stock trades at 0.2%, bond trades at 0.1%, and derivative transactions at 0.002%."

Yeah, let's become another Europe where the government just steals and pillages from private enterprises and business, look how well it's worked for them... record unemployment, record negative business activity, horrible economies that they have not been able to jumpstart in decades.
It's not high income in her own State (CA) and she knows it. But I guess getting rid of the middle class entirely is part of the appeal for her.

I gave an example. $200,000 self-employed earner paying a 23% effective federal income tax rate pays $4,466 in Medicare tax per year. It takes just over 22 years to hit the $100,000 mark in Medicare taxes paid. Many S-corp or LLC owners earn even more than $200,000/year.
