Warren has one of the most complex and convoluted platforms among all the presidential candidates. Even if I were able to decipher them all you would probably wouldn’t have the time to read it. So, I took a few key excerpts from her lengthy platforms to show you that she is a danger to democracy, that if elected would derail our economy and impose policies that will under-cut the middle class.
TAXES – Warren wants an annual wealth tax in January 2019. The proposal would levy a 2% annual tax on household net worth above $50M, and a 3% annual tax on net worth above $1bn. The tax would affect an estimated 75,000 households, and would yield $1.9tn or $2.75tn over a 10 year period, according to two different initial estimates. With this money she said she will pay off student loan debt, increase funding to all students and fully fund students with disabilities. (ha!)
TRADE – She would roll back Trump changes to NAFTA and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. She would also end trade wars to advantage farmers through subsidies.
Increase to welfare – Warren would direct the Department of the Treasury to disburse a payment equal to 3.9% of the average amount of annual benefits to certain individuals (except prisoners, fugitive felons, or aliens) who are entitled to a specific benefit under title II (Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance) of the Social Security Act, an annuity under the Railroad Retirement Act of 1974, a veterans benefit, or are eligible for a cash benefit under SSA title XVI (Supplemental Security Income), including a special benefit for individuals who perform substantial gainful activity despite severe medical impairment.
Energy – She says that “as long as we subsidize dirty sources like oil, gas, and coal, we threaten the air we breathe and the water we drink.” The means restricting our current sources of energy. Then use our federal tax dollars to buy clean energy technology such as wind and solar power. The results would be the highest energy cost to the consumer and to our industries to date, while the foreign competition has no such disadvantage.
LABOR – Warren is in favor of increasing the minimum wage and has argued that if the minimum wage had followed increases in worker productivity in the United States, it would now be at least $22 an hour. However, there is no evidence to back this up.
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT – Warren is against capital punishment (also known as the “death penalty”) and supports abolishing it in the United States.
VOTE – She would restore voting rights to ex-felons to aid democrats in their give-away policies to lure voters to them, forced on us through populism. So much for the value of an informed and responsible voter if she’s elected.
GUN LAWS – Warren supports suing gun manufacturers for the illegal use of their product. She would also reinstate the laws repealed regarding large capacity magazines and so-called assaults weapons in general.
BIO – Warren is running around the country touting her credentials as a special needs teacher and how it was her calling, her passion, and how she loved it more than anything else! However, the facts say different. Warren was fired after 12 months of teaching and she did not go back to her great love ever again. Instead she changed careers to become a lawyer. She’s dropped her claim to native American heritage that got her elected to the Senate after it was determined that she has none. Warren is just a self-serving liberal bureaucrat who has made a fortune feeding from the public trough.
