Warren Health Plan Tightens Democrats’ Embrace of Tax Increases – The New York Times

***

“Ms. Warren’s plan would move the costs of the entire American health care system, which she pegs at just under $52 trillion over the next decade, onto the books of the federal government. She says that would reduce overall health spending and spare Americans the financial burden of paying directly for care.

To cover those costs, Ms. Warren would impose a new tax on financial transactions, like buying and selling stocks and bonds. She would also tax profits from investments that increase in value on an annual basis — like shares in Google or Apple — not just when the assets are sold. She would raise taxes on American companies that book profits overseas.

Ms. Warren would also increase her wealth tax on billionaires to 6 percent of the value of all their assets above $1 billion, up from her previous proposal of 3 percent. And she would assess a tax on corporations that roughly equates to what they currently pay for employees’ health care, with a slight savings.” – Jim Tankersley, The New York Times

“… by relying on payroll contributions from employers and a range of other new taxes levied on corporations and the wealthy, she claims that she can create a system that provides health care for everyone and eliminates all the hassles of dealing with insurance companies, with, as the plan notes, “not one penny in middle-class tax increases.” Indeed, since households’ monthly premiums, co-payments, and deductibles would all vanish under the plan, some eleven trillion dollars a year “goes right back into the pockets of America’s working families.” – John Cassidy
