WARREN: It is time for a wealth tax in America. I've heard that there are some billionaires who don't support this plan.

LEON COOPERMAN: The vilification of billionaires makes no sense to me, it's bull.

JOE RICKETTS: She would ruin what we have.

LLOYD BLANKFEIN: She probably thinks more of cataclysmic change to the economic system as opposed to tinkering.

PETER THIEL: Well, I'm most scared by Elizabeth Warren.

WARREN: So here's the deal, you built a great fortune? Good for you. I guarantee you built it at least in part using workers all of us help pay to educate. Getting your goods to market on roads and bridges all of us help pay to build. We're Americans, we want to make these investments. All we're saying is when you make it big, pitch in two cents so everybody else gets a chance to make it.
