"Thanks to Trump's tax donation to the wealthy people, billionaires now pay a lower tax rate than teachers, nurses, firefighters, or truck drivers," Sanders explained.
Amid the people's struggle to sustain their economy, the wealth of 467 billionaires grew by US$731 billion since the beginning of the pandemic. That was thanks to the Federal Reserve's actions to shore up the stock market in March.
"The rich are getting very rich. Meanwhile, many U.S. citizens are facing unemployment, loss of health care, evictions, and hunger," Sanders added.
Richer communities have been more likely to stay home during the pandemic, according to a new study. Researchers say that could be because poorer communities may have more essential workers who can't work from home. https://t.co/LfWJJ3ZvEwpic.twitter.com/tkuKdUnTkg
