Howard Schultz Takes Jab At Top Liberal Democrats Over Proposed Tax Increases

The national grassroots group Tax March also condemned Schultz's support for low taxes for the rich and his dismissal of the income inequality that's left 80 percent of Americans living paycheck to paycheck while billionaires including him and President Donald Trump attack the government programs aimed at easing the suffering of the nation's poor and working class. "I will run as a centrist independent outside of the two-party system", he told CBS.

The "egotistical billionaire a***hole" heckler wasn't the only one to interrupt the event; another left-winger reportedly screamed out "Healthcare is a human right!" when Schultz explained that government-provided health care would leave the US bankrupt.

"Howard Schultz running as an independent isn't about bringing anyone together", said Tina Podlodowski, chair of the Washington State Democratic Party.

As he continues to weigh whether to jump into the 2020 race, Schultz has been receiving push back from Democrats who argue that he would siphon votes from the party's nominee, ultimately handing President Donald Trump his second term.

Schultz stepped down as chairman and CEO of Starbucks past year, and said at the time that he was exploring what he could do to best serve America.

AsMediate reports, in the interview, Schultz recounted seeing a clip of presidential contender Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) supporting Medicare for All by saying "she wants to abolish the insurance industry".

"I think it's un-American for the Dreamers not to have a pathway to citizenship and they should be given that", he said.

"Don't help elect Trump, you egotistical, billionaire a**hole", the disgruntled Democrat shouted.

Bruce McArthur pleads guilty to 8 counts of murder
It sparked a massive investigation in Toronto, the country's largest city, at dozens of properties where McArthur had worked. During our coverage of the investigation, we heard from friends and family members seeking help in finding their loved one.

"Go back to Davos with the rest of the billionaire elite who think they know how to run the world", the heckler added, before being pulled aside by security.

But at his book event Monday, Schultz made it clear that there are Democratic policies he would work against.

"Today, I ask you to join me in imagining a better America", Schultz wrote.

"And no one wants to see him fired more than me", Schultz said.

"If I decide to run for president as an independent, I will believe, and have the courage and conviction to believe, that I can win", Schultz said.

It's not just far-left activists who are upset about Schultz's tease of a presidential run.

Decrying hyper-partisanship is fair enough, but telling people who believe abortion involves the taking of human life that their singular focus on the issue is "the problem" with politics seems to be an ill-advised campaign strategy for a centrist hoping to steal enough votes from both political parties to win a presidential election.

Schultz's first campaign appearance of sorts didn't go much better.
