Elizabeth Warren Proposes Bill to ‘Force All Federal Candidates to Make Their Tax Returns Public’

At the beginning of the month, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) joined the Senate Committee on Finance and her first order of business was to introduce legislation for a “Wealth Tax” on fortunes above $50 million.

“It is time to make the ultra-rich pay their fair share,” Warren said at the time.

Today, Warren targeted former President Trump with a new bill that she said she was intending to propose.

Warren shared an article reporting about how the Supreme Court has paved the way for a New York City prosecutor to obtain Donald Trump’s tax returns and other financial records as part of a criminal investigation.

“The American people never got to see Trump’s tax returns while he was sitting in the Oval Office. That’s just plain wrong,” Warren claimed.

Warren then explained, “My bill to end Washington corruption would force all federal candidates to make their tax returns public—without years and years of lawsuits like this.”

When Warren was appointed to the committee, she said, “I look forward to being a progressive voice at the table to secure meaningful relief and lasting economic security for struggling families.”

“Our to-do list is long. We must provide immediate relief for families struggling under the weight of twin health and economic crises. We must make health care in America a human right and expand public programs like Medicaid and lower the Medicare eligibility age,” Warren added.
