This Chart Shows What Your Paycheck Will Look Like Under Bernie Sanders’ Tax Plan

Democratic 2016 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders‘ tax plan has been talked about by everyone in the country, but as he gains traction in the polls it’s time to start wondering: “What would it mean for my paycheck?”

Sanders, who has said moving people out of poverty is critical for the success of the country, would tax Americans from top to bottom to carry out his plan.
