Senator and Dem presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren wants to pay down student loan debt using money from other people, specifically rich people who have lots of goodies:
This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a "superyacht" with its own iMax theater. I'm pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt. https://t.co/Gk4ifAkxdT

First, let’s get the elephant in this particular room out of the way:
Of course you’re going after the Redskins owner. https://t.co/eILikKvwl5

We see what she did there!
Naturally she goes after the owner of the Redskins. https://t.co/dsef0IoVMO

Notice she went after the Redskins owner.
No coincidence. https://t.co/UFNNiYbI5s

Also, he has insulted your people and should change the name of his team. https://t.co/z4c8m5bY8s

LOL. And on top of that, there are other issues with the Warren approach:
imagine thinking someone else’s hard earned money should be yours because you’re jealous https://t.co/knkc6Me0yM

She’s from the government and she’s here to “help”!
So a lot of Snyder's money went back into the economy. What's the problem here? https://t.co/LyS6zQNvjs

The money spent on the yacht creates jobs for those who worked to build the yacht. Plus, it requires maintenance and staff to run–jobs and jobs. Catering for the yacht if desire? Jobs. Are you understanding this now? A much more moral & efficient use of capital than govt waste. https://t.co/N1hCCEfpor

What happens if billionaires stop buying yachts, which are built by middle-class people? Aren't you old enough to remember what happened in the early '90s to sales of planes, boats, and cars that were subject to a 10% luxury tax? It was regular folk who lost businesses and jobs. https://t.co/mtbdYNWpV8
