DescriptionSen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) unveiled a wealth tax proposal on Tuesday that goes further than his Democratic presidential race rival Elizabeth Warren in hitting the rich with new taxes.

The Sanders plan, which he touts as a "Tax on Extreme Wealth," would kick in at a lower threshold than his fellow senator's proposal, and would rise all the way to an 8 percent tax on households with wealth over $10 billion.
