Whether it’s democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) campaigning for it on Twitter or angry pundit Tucker Carlson foaming at the mouth about it on his nightly Fox News show, everyone is talking about taxing the rich. This is an issue that is set to dominate American political debate heading into the 2020 elections.
In that spirit, the Patriotic Millionaires are launching a multi-year, multi-platform campaign to fight for a better economy, starting with making the wealthiest among us pay their fair share. We’re celebrating the start of our Tax the Rich campaign with a kickoff event, TAX THE RICH! A Conference on Why and How tomorrow at 8:30 AM EST!
Though it’s being held in DC, we want this to be a conference for the people, not just Washington insiders, so we’re partnering with Act.TV to bring you a high-quality livestream of the ENTIRE event.
You can join us via livestream tomorrow at 8:30 AM, and trust us – you won’t want to miss this.
We’ve got an incredible range of speakers lined up for a series of panels, discussions, and speeches that will pull the curtain back on our rigged economy and outline a strategy for a positive, progressive future.
Some of the big names you’ll hear from tomorrow include Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Mark Pocan (D-WI), Bill Pascrell (D-NY), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), Cenk Uygur (The Young Turks), Jonathan Capeheart (The Washington Post), Randi Weingarten (AFL-CIO), and so many more! You can find a full list of our speakers, as well as the conference agenda, at taxtherichconference.com.
We hope you’ll tune in for a day that promises to be full of big ideas and bold solutions.
