The day after the debate, Elizabeth Warren bought a full page ad in Sheldon Adelson’s newspaper saying Sheldon Adelson will pay $2.3 billion the first year of her wealth tax. I think that’s called chutzpah. pic.twitter.com/dV7O3G8MJu

The morning after Sen. Elizabeth Warren savaged billionaire Mike Bloomberg on stage, possibly giving her flagging campaign new life, she went up with a new ad: Hitting Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson in his own Nevada newspaper, the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“Here’s how much Sheldon Adelson pays under Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax in the first year: $2,300,000,000,” the ad reads in bold lettering.
Adelson, the CEO of Las Vegas Sands, would only be paying 6% of his wealth, the ad states, enabling hundreds of thousands of Nevadans to have their student debt wiped out, as well as increased funding for child care, and free tuition at Nevada public universities, community colleges, and trade schools.
Adelson is the undisputed heavyweight among GOP donors, having donated nearly $80 million to Republicans in 2016 and $5 million to Trump’s inaugural festivities, as well as $55 million in Republican’s failed attempt to retain control of the House in 2018.
Damn, look at the balls on Elizabeth Warren!
She called Adelson out in his own newspaper.
No wonder she is the candidate that Wall Street fears the most.
