The White House is unveiling a new tax plan that would establish a minimum 20% tax rate on all U.S. households worth more than $100 million.

“It’s high time that people who have made billions of dollars pay the same taxes … as people who are in service jobs, and this is the first step towards that,” says California Congressmember Ro Khanna.
