That's a politician's look when they find out how many trillions are held in 401Ks, offshore company hoards and other billionaires.

about offshore havens. Amazing.
No doubt about inequalities, but I know of no law or civic code that requires a rich man to share a penny.
(Just the other night we were studying the parable of the rich man at Lu 16. It's said to teach hellfire- it doesn't. But if it did, we could ask what sin the rich man committed to deserve it? Answer: None that we know from the story! AFAWK he worked for the food he was enjoying; supported his own kin; paid his tithes etc. A good man; seriously lacking in affect, but not a sinner from the account.)
The OT laws about gleaning no longer apply- Mt 5:17- but we can see the principle behind them. Wouldn't work now by fiat because so few treat any of Jehovah's principles as applicable to them. The closest I know is the Gates-Buffet combine. Voluntary, with good intent. Not followers of Jeremiah though.

that was a standard campaign promise, from a pol old and experienced enough to know better. She needs new writers.
I did find it interesting that the economist who helped her set up the original medical plan says it could work, but not together with the other social expenditures she added. (See my 1st ¶.)
The big problem is that she proposes plans requiring cooperation among natural political enemies at a time of extreme divisiveness. Jer 10:23.
