From Michael Bloomberg’s New York Times Op-Ed, published today, Fixing Income Inequality Is My Priority:
“Every Democrat running for president agrees that income inequality is one of the great problems of our time. And we all agree that the wealthy should pay more in taxes. But only one of us has actually raised taxes on the wealthy by persuading a Republican legislature to vote for them: Me.”
“Thank you, Secretary Spencer, for your service and your leadership, and your integrity. And for always honoring the oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, even in the face of tremendous pressure. I can’t think of a person I respect more for their character. You really are the definition of a great American and we all appreciate it. Thank you for taking care of us. I also want to thank you in particular for that kind introduction – you gave it exactly the way I wrote it.
Later today at an event in Norfolk, a center of global maritime commerce and home of the world’s largest Navy base, Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg will announce new plans to ensure economic security, quality health care, and other critical support for our nation’s veterans and military families.
