YES! I think we should tax billionaires to fund our schools!
Most Californians have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Record unemployment and physical distancing have devastated our economy and hurt working families across the state, especially low-income communities of color. But the pain hasn’t been equally shared. In fact, a select few have profited greatly since the pandemic began (and even long before).
Astonishingly, since March California’s 161 billionaires have increased their net worth by $141 billion. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerbeg alone has seen his wealth increase $32 billion!
Instead of accepting the cuts that will devastate our schools and our communities, shouldn’t we instead ask those who are profiting the most during the COVID-19 pandemic to invest in our state’s recovery?

YES! I think we should tax billionaires to fund our schools and our communities. It's time to place people over pandemic profits!
