Robert Reich doesn’t seem to care much for billionaires.
That this guy is not only a Berkeley professor but was also Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labor may be the funniest damn thing we’ve seen today, and we cover Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pretty regularly so you KNOW this is funny.
Maybe he’s basing this tweet on what he knows about the Clintons?
Anyone who has a billion dollars either exploited a monopoly that should have been broken up, got inside information unavailable to other investors, bribed some politicians, or inherited the money from their parents (who did one of the above). https://t.co/pzVOxr1K7m

Huh, sounds a LOT like the Clintons.
But dude. C’mon.
You not only worked for Clinton, but Obama, Ford, and Carter as well.
So: given a standard distribution of competitors, M4, and the Planck constant, what is max. wealth? Asking for 7Bn friends. @fmanjoo

But Billionaires BAD.
We get it, he’s trying to pretend we shouldn’t be outraged that Democrats want to tax the evil billionaires at 70% because well, they’re evil. But he leaves out the point that they could tax these billionaires at 100% and it still wouldn’t cover their gross spending, and that eventually when the billionaires go broke, the government will come for the rest of us.
It’s never enough when your government is as bloated as ours is right now.
Move to Cuba, you little twerp.

Which one did @TomSteyer do?

Which one DIDN’T he do?
You got some stats to back that up? You're a professor, do you just pull crap out of thin air when you teach?

Berekely professor … that should answer this question.
Someone who “has” a billion dollars? For someone who claims to be an economist, you sure have an odd idea of how wealth is held.

They’re going to come first for the billionaires… then the millionaires… then the “rich” who have $100k plus. When they run out of those designated boogie-men, anyone with any money is fair game. I’ve seen this game played before, Bob, this is how it always ends.
