  The document said Biden's "Billionaire Minimum Income Tax" plan, which would target more than 700 U.S. billionaires, would impose a minimum tax rate of 20 percent on households with assets of more than $100 million.

  The document also said the tax would help reduce the budget deficit by about $360 billion over the next 10 years.

  The report said that in the fall of 2021, U.S. Senate Democrats had proposed a billionaire tax to help pay for a bill proposed by Biden called "Rebuilding a Better Future", but the spending plan failed to progress due to insufficient support in the Senate.
