Today’s Action: Support the Ultra Millionaire Tax Act!

Billionaires like Jeff Bezos have seen their profits skyrocket at the expense of struggling people across America. The United States suffers from a wealth gap far worse than even the lead-up to the Great Depression, with the system rigged severely in the ultra-rich’s favor. The pandemic has only worsened this problem, with billionaire wealth increasing by 40% since the beginning of COVID-19.

We’ve already seen that the ultra-rich will not seriously tackle issues like hunger or homelessness on their own accord, with billionaires joyriding into space rather than working to solve widespread suffering.

We must do away with tax loopholes that enable the wealthiest to hoard massive amounts of resources. Call (202-224-3121) or email your senators and tell them to support the Ultra Millionaire Tax Act, which would ensure that the wealthiest 100,000 households finally pay their fair share in taxes!

The Ulta Millionaire Tax Act would impose a “2% annual tax on net worth of households and trusts between $50 million and $1 billion” as well as “1% annual surtax (3% tax overall) on net worth of households and trusts above $1 billion,” according to cosponsors Senator Warren (D-OK) and Representative Jayapal (D-WA). It includes anti-evasion efforts and avoidance measures as well, further protecting the tax code from billionaire manipulation.

On the cusp of a severe housing crisis and climate disasters that threaten our infrastructure, those missing tax dollars are necessary in securing the future of working-class families struggling across the nation.

Call (202-224-3121) or email your senators and demand they support the Ultra Millionaire Tax Act to close the racial wealth gap and bring in trillions in revenue, without raising the taxes of the working families!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to arrest and charge every insurgent involved with the Trump-inspired MAGA coup on the Capitol, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
