The presidential campaign of Elizabeth Warren essentially amounts to a long wish list of how the federal government can get its hands on more of Americans’ money, and here’s one of her latest ideas:
Elizabeth Warren becomes the first 2020 Democrat to endorse a housing plan that includes a federal tax on empty and second homes. That is HUGE!
Of all the recommendations in this report, that strikes at the heart of the housing crisis in major cities like NYC and SF. https://t.co/6W2IWZ28kh

So this is a federal property tax? In addition to the full state property taxes people already pay on their second homes? https://t.co/kwwAq9f4mx

If Warren were to be the 2020 nominee, she might not get the vote of at least one of her competitors:

Bernie Sanders could not be reached for comment at any of his three homes.

Keep trying to out-do each other, 2020 Dems:
It's like all the Democratic candidates are trying to one-up each other to get Trump reelected.
One of them is going to end up promising to spend their entire first term slashing everyone's tires. https://t.co/XZfJhLhL2R
