Don’t waste bandwidth on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing when she was in college. Or Instagramming from her kitchen. Save your emotion for her silly policy ideas. Like a 70% TAX HIKE! Just to pay for her Green New Deal (see Ocasio-Cortez Thinks Green Energy Will Bring Racial & Social Justice and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Compares Climate Change to Nazi Germany).
Of course, it’s only a tax for richie rich people. So, it’s like just totes kewl.
“But once you get to the tippie tops, on your $10 millionth, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60% or 70%. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate. But it means that as you climb up this ladder, you should be contributing more.”
Nevermind how stupid it is to keep pushing the green agenda.
How about thinking it is morally wrong for the government to take away more than half of your money for any reason? Yes, even if that person makes a lot more than I do. Not to mention, this leftist attitude “we’re only raising taxes on rich people” is temporary. Eventually, they’re going to raise your taxes too. Math isn’t fluid like they claim gender is. It’s a real thing.
The most dangerous thing about people like Cortez getting a pedestal: they manipulate people into believing anyone having more than them is corrupt and wrong. Vote for them, and they’ll take it away on your behalf. For “fairness.” You won’t get that money, by the way. You’ll get nothing for it other than some kind of weird, primal “AHA!” feeling which just proves you’re a stupid dumbass whose mother probably used your head to open tight pickle jars.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is basically the gender-swapped, prettier version of Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. Only with the media behind her.
