It does seem tempting to call the entire group of Democratic candidates for 2020 socialists, although the party has put up some “moderates” like Joe Biden. Bernie Sanders is a democratic socialist, and he seems to be most directly in competition with Elizabeth Warren when it comes to policy. However, Bloomberg is insisting (in a since-deleted tweet) that not only is Warren a capitalist; she’d be “better for business and the economy than President Trump.”

She advocates for free markets? She wants to take over health care, childcare, you name it, all while promising to break up the big corporations.
She's more socialist than she is Native American.

Yeah, no. Comrade Liz is one second hand Che t-shirt shy of being the full Bernie.

Communist or Marxist??
Cuz she’s definitely not a capitalist.

Tell her to stop talking about a government takeover of the healthcare industry, redistribution of wealth, and using government to go after private companies through regulation

You're right. More of a fascist/communist, to be honest.

Okay, okay. She’s a communist.

Agreed. Communist is more apt

We think Bloomberg had it right earlier:
Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax would be an abuse of government power. It is the tax-code equivalent of looting mansions https://t.co/fDNz9xqdYI
