“Make Billionaire’s Pay” is a Trojan Horse for Wealth Taxes on the Middle Class

Yes, they are coming for your money.

As I first predicted in my booked The Everything Bubble in 2017, whenever the next crisis hits in the U.S., the political elites in the U.S. will use it as an excuse to implement wealth taxes and cash grabs.

The COVID-19 pandemic hit in February of 2020. And right on cue, within a few months policymakers are calling for wealth taxes.

Their reasoning?

To fund the insane debt loads cities and states have racked up in the decades leading up to the pandemic.

We’ve already addressed the situation in New York and California where legislation is being introduced to tax the super wealth.

Now there are calls for a NATION-wide wealth tax on billionaires designed to fund health care costs for average Americans.

Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders—backed by Democratic Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Ed Markey of Massachusetts—has introduced the Make Billionaires Pay Act to recapture over half the extreme wealth gains made by billionaires during the pandemic.

The bill proposes a one-time, 60% tax exclusively on billionaires’ gains between March 18 and the end of this year. It would raise about $420 billion, based on the increased wealth of the country’s billionaires as of Aug. 5.

Anyone who thinks that the wealth taxes would truly be just a “one time” deal aimed exclusively at the “super wealthy” needs to have his or her head examined.

Like every other horrible policy of the last 20 years, Wealth Taxes are being introduced to the public via their most palatable version… namely, “taxing billionaires” or the “super wealthy.”

This same story played out with both the Patriot Act and Obamacare. The political elite always sell the American people on aggressive policies by presenting the policies in the least offensive manner possible.

After all, who could be against the government spying on people if it is designed to just target terrorists?

And who could be against the government taking over healthcare if you can keep your doctor and will save $2,500 per year on your healthcare bills?

And who can be against taxing billionaires a percentage of their gains from stock market?

Except that’s not the plan at all.

The IMF has already shown us the plan… which is a 10% tax on NET WEALTH for everyone.

The reasoning?

To shore up sovereign balance sheets (reduce debt levels). And believe it or not, some of this plan has already been signed into law.

Did you know that in 2011, the US passed legislation that would allow regulators to:

1)    Freeze bank accounts and use them to “bail-in” financial institutions/ banks.

2)    Close the “gates” on investment funds/ money market funds to stop you from getting your money out.

3)    Impose wealth taxes and seize unused assets.

If you think that’s bad, consider that the Fed plans to both seize and STEAL savings during the next crisis/ recession.

If you think this sounds like a “conspiracy theory” we’ve actually uncovered a secret document outlining exactly how the elites plan to do this. It was written by a man who has served as an advisor to THREE separate central banks.

We detail this paper and outline three investment strategies you can implement right now to protect your capital from the Fed’s sinister plan in our Special Report The Great Global Wealth Grab.
