Other the weekend, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) jumped at news that Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder had spent $100 million to buy himself a yacht that features a helipad, four VIP suites, and a full Imax movie theater.
"This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100 million for a 'superyacht' with its own Imax theater," Warren wrote while linking to a Washington Post story about the yacht. "I'm pretty sure he can pay my new Ultra Millionaire Tax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt."

Appearing on Fox News Monday, conservative Charles Payne said that Warren doesn't understand how many people are grateful to be employed by Snyder, and suggested that they would all lose their jobs if she ever taxed his yacht.
"If you ever go to Redskins FedEx stadium, you'll notice there are a whole lot of people working there," he said. "If you don't have the proper work skills to get a job today, you won't have them tomorrow once Dan Snyder's money is gone."
Host Sandra Smith also suggested that Warren wasn't considering all the workers who might be out of jobs if people like Snyder no longer had enough money to buy $100 million yachts.
"That yacht was built by a lot of people!" she said.
"The point is that he earned it," Payne added.
