The Massachusetts senator responded to Howard Schultz in a tweet Tuesday morning, after the former Starbucks CEO called her wealth tax proposal “ridiculous.” “What’s ‘ridiculous’ is billionaires who think they can buy the presidency to keep the system rigged for themselves while opportunity slips away for everyone else,” Warren wrote. Schultz — who announced this week that he is seriously considering running for president as a “centrist independent” — took issue with Warren’s wealth tax proposal in an interview that aired Tuesday morning on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” “What we have today is an unfair system,” he told NPR host Steve Inskeep. “However, when I see Elizabeth Warren come out with a ridiculous plan of taxing wealthy people a … [Read more...] about What to know about the dispute between Elizabeth Warren and Howard Schultz
