Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has recently expressed a similar sentiment. The reaction is due in part to Warren’s plan for a 2 percent annual levy on household wealth above $50 million, with another 1 percent tax for those above $1 billion, which would impact approximately 75,000 households and raise $2.75 trillion over a decade, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Warren responded on Twitter, saying she’d like to discuss the plan with Gates. And today, Gates Tweeted back saying he’s “willing to talk.”
