Kamala Harris wants estate tax increased to pay teachers


Like the entire field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are doing, Sen. Kamala Harris is running a left of center campaign to win over the Democratic Party’s progressive base of support.

Harris has a “big idea” that is focused on bolstering education helping teachers, but it will cost Americans in a ‘big’ way.

According to Harris, she wants to “pay teachers their value” and is proposing giving them all a $13,500 raise because she believes that teachers are being paid 11% less than other professionals.

When asked how much the total “price tag” of her proposal, Harris said that “the price tag is $315 billion over the course of 10 years, and that it will be paid for by “increasing the estate tax.”
