伊丽莎白·沃伦对比尔·盖茨:我会向你解释我的财富税



  参议员伊丽莎白·沃伦(Elizabeth Warren)表示,她“愿意”向比尔·盖茨(Bill Gates)解释,他将根据她提议的财富税支付多少。此前,这位全球第二富有的人表示,他相信他可能会根据这项税收支付1000亿美元

  约翰·兰帕斯基/盖蒂图片社比尔·盖茨质疑伊丽莎白·沃伦的“财富税”计划。

  盖茨在发表上述言论后补充道,他“只是在开玩笑”。盖茨只是几位公开反对沃伦财富税的亿万富翁之一,该法案将对10亿美元以上的财富征收6%的附加费,为她的“全民医保”计划筹集资金。

  盖茨是公开质疑沃伦计划的几位亿万富翁之一。周二,摩根大通(JP Morgan Chase)的杰米·戴蒙(Jamie Dimon)估计价值16亿美元-告诉CNBC说,民主党总统候选人“污蔑成功人士”。与此同时,亿万富翁投资者利昂·库珀曼(Leon Cooperman)在讨论2020年CNBC选举时,流下了眼泪,说他认为沃伦称亿万富翁为“坏蛋”。

  关于税收和公平的辩论是在财富不平等日益加剧的情况下展开的。虽然美国的税收制度应该是累进的,这意味着富裕家庭比中产阶级和穷人缴纳更多的税款,而美国现在有400个最富有的家庭支付比中产阶级低的税率,根据两位著名经济学家伊曼纽尔·赛兹和加州大学伯克利分校的加布里埃尔·祖克曼最近的研究。

  盖茨周三在“纽约时报”的交易手册会议上表示,他对沃伦提议的税收表示担忧,不过他补充说,他支持累进税制。

  盖茨说:“我已经交纳了超过100亿美元的税款。我缴纳的税款比任何人都多。”“但是当你说我应该支付1000亿美元的时候,我就开始对我剩下的做一些计算。”

  

a screen shot of Bernie Sanders:    A record number of candidates are vying for the Democratic   nomination to take on      President Donald Trump in 2020.       23 total Democratic contenders are competing in the primary,   including a former vice president, seven current US senators, six   current and former members of the US House, two governors, four   mayors, two businessmen, and one prominent author.       Former Massachusetts Governor      Bill Weld is also challenging Trump in the Republican     primary.      Here's a list of the major party 2020 presidential   candidates.            Visit Business Insider's     homepage for more stories.       Soon after assuming the office of the presidency in January 2017,   President Donald Trump    filed preliminary paperwork that laid the groundwork for   re-election in 2020.    With the first official votes in the primary over seven months,   23 Democratic contenders are already lined up to challenge Trump   - making for one of the largest and most diverse primary fields   in recent history. So far, an additional four Democrats have   dropped out of the race.    While California Rep.    Eric Swalwell dropped out of the presidential race to run for   re-election in the House on July 8, billionaire Democratic   activist    Tom Steyer - also from California - jumped into the race less   than a day after, pledging to spend at least $100 million on his   campaign.     Since then, former Gov.    John Hickenlooper has also dropped out and is considering   running for US Senate in Colorado instead.

Trump is also facing opposition within his own party. Former   Massachusetts governor and Libertarian vice presidential nominee      Bill Weldannounced he will run against   Trump in the Republican primary.    Here are all the major party candidates running for president in   2020:

  盖茨还表示,他不确定沃伦是否会与他会面。“我不知道她有多开放,或者她是否愿意和一个有钱的人坐下来,”他说。

  沃伦在推特上还击,说她很乐意和他坐下来。

  她在推特上给盖茨贴上了标签,她写道:“即使我们有不同的看法,我也很乐意与人见面。”“如果我们有机会的话,我很乐意解释你在我的财富税下会付多少钱。(我保证不是1000亿美元。”

  盖茨不仅是美国亿万富翁中最富有的人,参与了沃伦的财富税,而且也是最慈善的人之一。他和他的妻子梅林达·盖茨共同创造与亿万富翁沃伦·巴菲特(WarrenBuffett)的捐赠誓言,是他们一生中把大部分个人财富捐给慈善机构的誓言。
