Elizabeth Warren is running for president because she loves America and everything it stands for. But when you start talking about getting to keep the money you’ve worked for, well, you’re cruisin’ for a bruisin’.
Bill Gates, who happens to be one of those mega-billionaires Warren says will fund Medicare for All, recently voiced his concern about the prospect of her taxing him through the nose:
Bill Gates on a wealth tax:
"I've paid over $10 billion in taxes. I've paid more than anyone in taxes. If I had to pay $20 billion, it's fine."
"But when you say I should pay $100 billion, then I'm starting to do a little math over what I have left over."

If there’s one thing Elizabeth Warren hates — other than billionaires — it’s math. So, in order to avoid having to acknowledge that her math is bogus, she wants to sit down for a friendly little chat Mr. Gates:
I'm always happy to meet with people, even if we have different views. @BillGates, if we get the chance, I'd love to explain exactly how much you'd pay under my wealth tax. (I promise it's not $100 billion.) https://t.co/m6G20hDNaV

If he’s willing to hear her out, she’s sure she can make him see the light.

Billionaires should not exist. Also billionaires will be paying for all my policies what

Oh well. At least Warren’s winning even more hearts and minds with her offer:
So nice that you are willing to take time out from your busy day to comfort multibillionaire Bill Gates.

Yes, kiss the ring
It's laughable that anyone thinks of you as an economic reformer

Isn’t this fun?
