Took the Indivisible 2020 Candidate Pledge: YES (constructive primary & beat Trump)

Signature Policy: Elizabeth grew up on the ragged edge of the middle class in Oklahoma and became a teacher, a law professor, and a US Senator because America invested in kids like her.

Warren wants to address American inequality with a wealth tax, imposed annually on ultra-millionaires, to pay for benefits, including universal free or low-cost childcare, for “yacht-less Americans.” Fortunes greater than $50 million would be taxed at 2 percent.

Pete Buttigieg

Website: peteforamerica.com

Quote: "The president's promise is to turn back the clock, that we can somehow just go back to the 1950s. It’s just not true. The economy is changing, the pace of change is accelerating, and what we’ve got to do is master those changes in order to make them work for us."

Took the Indivisible 2020 Candidate Pledge: YES (constructive primary & beat Trump)

Signature Policy: “The electoral college needs to go.” Pete believes in our democratic republic, but knows that our government has not been nearly democratic or accountable enough. Too many communities have been denied their voice in the political process while our democracy has been captured by special interests and those with the greatest economic power.
