Warren’s ambitious agenda relies on a massive wealth tax that the rich may evade

Six words — increasingly met with cheers on the campaign trail — have come to encapsulate Elizabeth Warren’s position as the leading ideas candidate in the crowded Democratic presidential primary: “I’ve got a plan for that.”

In town halls across the country, Warren has promoted her plans to offer Americans free college, universal child care, student debt cancellation and more — all paid for by raising taxes on the superwealthy.

Taken as a whole, the Massachusetts senator’s transformative slate of social programs and tax increases could amount to the largest transfer of wealth from the richest Americans to the middle class in U.S. history.
