    What is her net worth and how much if that is based on her name or direct inheritance? I'm all for figuring out the wealth gap but I despise hypocrisy and nothing makes my skin crawl more than someone saying "raise taxes" who will still be left a millionaire many times over no matter what.

    Well, she's talking about raising taxes on people earning over 5M annually. That doesn't sound entirely unreasonable to me, and regardless of where she got her's, she'd be affected.

    Everyone just be taxed the same and all these people living on welfare with 8 kids and don’t work and get 2k every year for each kid they have is BS. I don’t care what other people make or pay on taxes, I’m sure they use every loophole they can so they can keep as much as they can.
    I know before I became disabled and was making over 100k a year. I was lucky if I was able to keep 60% of what I made

    Carl where I live you are not far off, you would keep mid 60s (not including any retirement savings stuff).
