Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden is proposing to raise taxes on capital gains to the same rates as ordinary income. Wyden estimates the plan could raise $1.5 trillion to $2 trillion over a decade, and could shore up the Social Security Trust Fund.

New from me: Wyden puts some more meat on the bones of his capital-gains tax plan. A lot to think about in here.

From Torsten Slok at Deutsche Bank: corporations using their profits for dividends and buybacks, not investment — hence the failure of the 2017 tax cut

Fixing out-of-control drug prices can’t wait. Big Pharma is busy lobbying to stop Congress from putting limits on price gouging, but the American people are demanding action. It’s time to end rampant profiteering at the expense of families’ paychecks.

NEW from : a recent study shows that the average annual cost for popular drugs has gone up $5,000 since 2006 when Medicare Part D went into effect. Under the inflation penalty, that increase would have been just $500 over more than a decade.

Trump made big promises about how his tax giveaway and reckless trade agenda would help workers. None of them have come true.

Republicans claimed that billions in handouts for wealthy corporations would benefit workers, but companies just stuffed the money into shareholders’ pockets while kicking their workers to the curb.

Two years after giving hundreds of billions in tax cuts to American’s wealthiest, Republicans want to give them billions more. led Senate Dems in calling on Trump to reject this illegal handout to the wealthy while middle-class families struggle to make ends meet.

If your goal is to hurt seniors by gambling away their hard-earned benefits, then privatizing Social Security is a great plan.

After supporting Trump's tax law to give hundreds of billions in tax handouts to America's wealthiest, Republicans are pushing for *another* $100 billion giveaway.

.: What this is about is deciding who’s going to come first -- patients and taxpayers, or the pharmaceutical giants who are still celebrating the billions they just got in tax handouts.

.: The pharma industry is going to try to douse this proposal with a PR tsunami. They’ll claim it’s the end of innovation in America. That it’s all about price controls. That it’s going to destroy jobs & lead to drug shortages. None of that is true.

.: Seniors w/ expensive prescriptions will finally have peace of mind because this proposal caps their out-of-pocket expenses in Medicare Part D. It will save seniors $27 billion in out-of-pocket costs.

Replying to @RonWyden
.: This proposal saves Medicare $50 billion with a price hike penalty for drug companies. It does this by limiting taxpayer subsidies for price hikes. If drug makers raise prices faster than inflation, they’ll have to pay the difference back to Medicare.

.: It’s past time to stop the ongoing effort to sabotage the ACA & eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions. Democrats will not vote to begin floor debate on this proposal until it’s clear that amendments on those two issues will get votes.
