Wall Street feuds with Warren, much to her apparent delight

Elizabeth Warren’s feud with Wall Street escalates, with billionaires saying Warren “vilifies” successful people

In an interview on business new channel CNBC Thursday, billionaire investor Leon Cooperman said Warren’s plan to impose a new tax on the nation’s richest people would “penalize success” and that a Warren presidency would mean “big trouble” for Wall Street and the country.

The Massachusetts senator has made an issue of income inequality in her campaign for the White House. One of her key proposals is a 2% tax on every dollar of an individual’s wealth above $50 million.

But as Warren has gained in the polls, the reaction from Wall Street and the financial industry has become louder and more antagonistic.
